Giuseppe Rossi is being pursued by a number of clubs in Italy and England, according to his agent.
The Villarreal striker may leave the club in the summer and could move back to his homeland or to England, where he was a member of Manchester United’s youth team before moving to Spain.
“I feel that the player can leave Villarreal because this is a period of downsizing for the club,” Rossi’s agent Andrea Pastorello told calciomercato.it.
“Several teams like Giuseppe in Italy.
“Juventus and Roma are important clubs, also Napoli and Fiorentina, but there are no real negotiations yet.
“I’m not sure whether Rossi will certainly come back to Italy, in recent weeks he was also viewed by several English clubs such as Liverpool,Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City.”
Pastorello spoke of the 23-year-old’s desire to make Marcello Lippi’s squad to go to the World Cup, as the Italians look to defend the title they won in 2006 under Lippi.
“We hope he’s within the 23 for the World Cup,” he added.
“For Rossi it is an honour to be called by Lippi.
“The World Cup may lead to something more, but I don’t think it will influence the market of interest too much.”
