Adelaide United have confirmed their interest in Al Rayyan striker Danny Allsopp.

Adelaide United have confirmed their interest in Al Rayyan striker Danny Allsopp.

Allsopp's release from Qatar club Al Rayyan is imminent and Reds chief Michael Petrillo said he would be among a number of players United would consider if he became available.

"Obviously we've heard he is coming back but things haven't really progressed beyond that," Petrillo told The Advertiser.

"Given his record, I think plenty of clubs would be interested in him. He'd be on a list we'd look at for next year, along with a lot of other players."

Adelaide face competition from Melbourne Victory for the striker.

"I'm not sure what the Victory's salary cap situation is but given he's a Melbourne boy, on face value you would have to say they would have a strong claim," added Petrillo.
