Rossi suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in April while on loan at Celta Vigo, leading to concerns his playing career could be over.

But the 30-year-old has now recovered, and took to Twitter on Tuesday to declare: "Next stop....Serie A!!!!"

The former Manchester United forward has undergone a number of operations on his right knee over the past few years, with the injury suffered in April the first issue he experienced in his left knee.

Rossi joined Celta on a one-year loan deal from Fiorentina for the 2016-17 campaign, and has been out of contract following the conclusion of last season. 

The striker was born in New Jersey, but turned down the chance to represent the United States in favour of Italy. Rossi has amassed 29 caps with the Azzurri, scoring seven goals.
