Promising attacker Eduardo Salvio was in talks over a move to Fiorentina this summer, but discussion broke down with the result that he stayed at Argentine side Lanus.
However, agent Salvatore Bagni has revealed that the 19-year-old's switch could be reignited in the winter transfer window.
"I hope that the move can be completed in January," he announced to Violanews.com.
"I believe that Fiorentina's interest is still strong because he cannot suddenly have been dropped - they followed the player very closely in the summer."
While many believed that Salvio's valuation was causing the problems in negotiations, Bagni has explained that this was not the case.
"It was not a financial problem that caused the affair to collapse in the summer. I cannot go into details, but I repeat that it was not because of Lanus' excessive demands," he assured.
"I don't know anything [about renewed negotiations] - everything is down to Fiorentina. If they really have the intention of buying Salvio, it could happen in January.
"The boy would be very happy to move to Italy. The heir of [Adrian] Mutu? He has the characteristics to play second striker or on the wing," he concluded.
