Beckham could become Livorno's transfer advisor on a one-off basis, as the Tuscan club turn to him for an opinion...
With his experience of playing in Major League Soccer for Los Angeles Galaxy, Spinelli sees Beckham as the perfect man to ask questions regarding Ljungberg and the American game, as he monitors the Swedish player.
"Ljungberg? It's a move that we are working on. We have tried to speak with Beckham to see what he makes of Ljungberg from the last MLS season which finished a month ago," Spinelli told Dahlia TV.
Spinelli claims Milan director Ariedo Braida will be the go-between for getting in touch with Beckham.
"Yes, it's he [Braida] who knows him [Beckham] well. It seems Ljungberg has been training well, but we have to see what conditions he will arrive in, otherwise we will sign an Italian player from the market.
"Our market is not closed and we are looking for chances to improve our squad."
Livorno are keen on bringing in a replacement for Antonio Candreva, who joined Juventus from Udinese on Wednesday, having been on loan with the Amaranto for the past 18 months.
