Fiorentina fell painfully close in their pursuit of a Champions League place with Milan denying them with just minutes before the end of the season.

Money will be made available by co-owner Andrea Della Valle, who demonstrates such passion watching his club each week from the stands.
Here are five players that will help strengthen the squad and give them a better chance of improving on last season.
