Free agent Giuseppe Rossi wanted by Alaves, Las Palmas

Free agent Giuseppe Rossi is wanted back in Spain.

Italian sources say Alavés and Las Palmas are keen on signing ex-Villarreal, Levante and Celta Vigo striker Rossi this winter.

Rossi, who is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered while on loan at Celta during the 2016/17 campaign, is currently a free agent after being released by parent club Fiorentina in the summer.

The ACL tear, which occurred in a LaLiga clash against EIbar in April, was the fourth of the 30-year-old's injury-plagued career.

Rossi is expected to be fit in December, paving the way for the Italian - capped 30 times by the Azzurri - to seal a mid-season transfer to a new club, with Serie A Chievo also said to be targeting the player.
