Roy Hodgson is planning a hopeful move to sign former Man United striker Giuseppe Rossi. The Villarreal striker is on the Liverpool manager’s short list for new striking talent as the Anfield boss looks to bring in reinforcements in January.

The Italian international has been a big success in La Liga and has netted four times this season to help his side to second spot in the table. The pint sized New Jersey born striker is in fourth season at the El Madrigal and has been a big success at the Yellow Submarines but has been linked with a move away from the Spanish minnows.

A move back to the Premier League may excite the 23 year old who may feel such a move would aid his chances of a regular spot in the national team set up.

The £14m rated goalscorer narrowly missed out on Marcello Lippi’s ill fated World Cup squad but his recent good form has helped force his way back into the manager’s thinking. The chance to ply his trade alongside Fernando Torres may well interest the former Old Trafford man and now that the issue of ownership at Liverpool has cleared up somewhat, Hodgson may well find himself with funds in January to put in a decent offer for the Italian.
