Rossi is set on moving away from Spain after Villarreal were relegated to the Segunda Division-which is partly due to Rossi’s ACL injury that kept him out for most of the season.
The Italian international is still recovering after knee surgery and will be out until February. However, there has been heavy interest from Italy all summer.
Milan seemed to be in pole position to land Rossi this summer, but the club instead went with Giampaolo Pazzini and Bojan Krkic.
Now it seems like Roma could pry him away from the Yellow Submarine. According to ESPN, Rossi would like to work with Roma manager Zdenek Zemin.
So it seems like Rossi could be a Serie A player by the end of January. Roma appears to be the team most likely to get him, but they will have a fight on their hands.
