Rocchi now linked with Latina

Latina are the latest Serie B side to show an interest in available veteran striker Tommaso Rocchi.

Rocchi, paired with Padova recently, can be signed outside of the transfer window given that his contract with Inter expired in the summer.

“We are still evaluating things,” agent Oscar Damiani told Tutto Latina. “Serie B has some complicated rules about squads so it is difficult to join a club mid-season.

“Latina? They have an interesting project and it is not too far away from the city of Rome, therefore I won’t exclude such an option.”

The 35-year-old, formerly of Empoli, joined the Nerazzurri in January after almost a decade with capital outfit Lazio.

Over the last three seasons in Serie A, Rocchi has scored 11 goals in 54 appearances.

Latina are currently hovering just above the relegation zone in the Second Division. They have scored just five goals in eight games so far this term.
