By taking on the job at Fiorentina, Daniele De Rossi could start his coaching career, says reporter Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport Italia.
Following in the footsteps of his father Alberto, The World Cup winner has already said that he wants to go into management as his father was the coach of the Roma youth team for many years.
De Rossi resigned in January and will turn 37 later this month after encounters at Roma and Boca Juniors.
Fiorentina is searching for a new coach as Beppe Iachini replaced Vincenzo Montella in December and is struggling to hold them out of the drop zone.
Luciano Spalletti is still under contract with Inter until June 2021 and was logged as a possible candidate for the job, but his salary could also be a question.
De Rossi would certainly be intriguing as he had been proposed by Fiorentina to play for them in the summer of 2019 when his agreement with Roma was not been renewed.
It would be an unusual situation as a coach as he didn’t feel prepared to play with his beloved Roma for another Serie A club.
