Australian media think Sydney FC have a deal, but it’s now rumoured Alessandro Del Piero is considering an offer from Liverpool!
The former Juventus legend is out of contract and evaluating several proposals from Sydney FC, Sion and Southampton.
The Australians are confident he will be presented to the media tomorrow, but Italian transfer pundits revealed a shock twist this evening.
It is reported that Del Piero has received a late offer from Liverpool, who face a striker shortage after releasing Andy Carroll to West Ham United without bringing in a replacement.
Southampton had potential, as Del Piero has always said he’d like to experience the Premier League, but Liverpool bring even more prestige and atmosphere.
‘Pinturicchio’ wore the Juventus jersey for 20 years and turns 38 in November.
