The Italy international admits to having been targeted by the Florence-based outfit in the past, but is unaware of any interest in the current transfer window.

He is also quick to point out that he is not looking for a move, with a long-term contract penned upon his arrival in England.

Giaccherini intends to honour that agreement and prove his worth in the Premier League before contemplating a homecoming in Serie A.

He told fiorentina.it: “Fiorentina have followed me in the past but I have never had concrete contact.

“I’m happy at Sunderland. I have three more years on my contract.

“I’m enjoying this experience in England and this season I hope to do better than last year. I completed a full pre-season and the coach knows me better now.

“A future in Fiorentina? Florence is a city I love, I was born 50km from Florence. If there is a possibility in the future, why not?”

icky van Wolfswinkel's remarkable record of one goal from one game at least deserves an honourable mention. And I'm willing to bet that at least one of Costa, Ulloa or Enner Valencia will earn a place on the list by the end of the season. Probably not Costa
