AS Roma are chasing Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi.

The Italy international expects to recover from a serious knee injury before the end of the season.

Corriere dello Sport says Roma are preparing a €20m bid to bring Rossi to the Stadio Olimpico.

'Pepito' Rossi showed an interest in Luis Enrique's style of football and feels he would be the ideal man to gel the Spanish and Italian game together.
