ITASportPress understand that Milan want to reform the club starting with the sacking of under achieving Sinisa Mihajlovic. One of his replacement candidates comes in the form of Fiorentina's Paulo Sousa who is rumoured to be near the exit door at the Stadio Artemi Franchi.

Sousa and Mihajlovic only joined their respective clubs in the summer but both seem set for exits, sooner than they'd likely have hoped for with the success they perhaps expected arriving. In Sousa's case his relationship with club officials is poor after there were numerous disputes over lack of January transfers.

While Sousa is linked to the San Siro, Mihajlovic is linked to the Stadio Olimpico where he would take over the Lazio reigns after Stefano Pioli's sacking after a crushing 4-1 defeat in the Derby della Capitale this past weekend.

Corsi high of praise for candidate Giampaolo

Empoli president Fabrizio Corsi was asked on Radio Blu about Sousa's situation and spoke fondly of Empoli boss Marco Giampaolo who could depart the Carlo Castellani for La Viola being one of the alleged front runners should Sousa leave. 

Corsi called Giampaolo a "great coach" as well as a "calm person" something which will come in handy when dealing with the pressure in Florence, "of which there is plenty" he added.

Fiorentina ultra group Curva Fiesole have urged away fans to boycott this weekend's Tuscan derby with Empoli over ticket prices.

The group feel the azzurri's prices of €30 across the board is unjust and that a reduced ticket price for groups such as the young or elderly should've been implemented.

In a statement posted on the group's facebook page they said, "The stadium has to be something that is open to everyone, not a privilege for the few."
