Giuseppe Rossi “can be a serious prospective signing” for Italian clubs in January despite his operation, says his agent.
The Villarreal and Italy forward has been out of action for a year after damaging the same knee ligament twice and went under the knife again last week.
“I think that Rossi can be very useful for many clubs,” agent Claudio Pasqualin told ilsussidiario.net.
“In January he can be a serious prospective signing. Giuseppe can be a bargain at the right price and certain clubs could well think about it.”
The 25-year-old is expected to return in the spring and is of interest to Roma, Juventus, Napoli, Milan and Fiorentina.
