Ambrosini agent claims A-League interest

An unnamed Australian club has made an offer for outgoing AC Milan captain Massimo Ambrosini, though they face stern competition from the likes of West Ham

The agent of AC Milan captain Massimo Ambrosini claims the former Italy international has received an offer from Australia.

The 36-year-old midfielder is set to depart Milan after 18 years at the Serie A club, with interest in his signature from the likes of West Ham, Fiorentina or MLS outfit Los Angeles.

A move to the latter duo seems unlikely, but it seems an A-League club has also made a play for the veteran.

"Massimo did expect this decision [to be released from Milan], but he was still a bit upset. At this moment, seeing as he feels in good shape physically, we will evaluate offers", Ambrosini's agent Moreno Roggi said.

"The situation is we turned down an offer from Los Angeles. We have negotiations going on with West Ham, but nothing with Fiorentina, as they have not made us any proposals. Having said that, I do hear Ambrosini is on the list for the Viola if David Pizarro leaves.

"We received another offer this morning from Australia."

Ambrosini is likely to command a hefty wage should he accept a move to Australia, with Adelaide United, Melbourne Heart, the Central Coast Mariners, Perth Glory and the Wellington Phoenix without an international marquee.

Melbourne Victory have been in talks with Greece international Giorgios Karagounis, placing doubt on the status of current international marquee Marcos Flores.
