Fiorentina have joined Liverpool and Benfica in the race for Olimpija Ljubljana shot-stopper Jan Oblak.

The Viola were linked with the custodian during the January transfer window, but did not aggressively pursue him. Now, they have re-set their sights on the 17-year-old Slovenian.

According to Slovenian newspaper Ekipa, the Della Valle family [club owners of Fiorentina] are closely watching the progress of the goalkeeper.

Oblak has already captained his club, as well as been invited by the Reds to watch a match at Anfield earlier this season.

Aston Villa are also in the hunt for the talented shot-stopper.
