Liverpool and Manchester City have both been put on alert after Fiorentina’s Alberto Gilardino suggested that his future could lie away from Italy. Speaking to Italian sports channel Sky Sports Italia Gilardino hinted that he could be prepared to take on a fresh challenge.
“I would like to stay in Florence, but there are some things to review, such as the contract,” Gilardino said.
“We have to talk to the club because I am worth a substantial figure. Although I love where I am now, there are some things to evaluate.”
“In the future I would certainly like an experience abroad, perhaps in Spain or England.”
Despite only been 28 years old Gilardino has enjoyed huge success in his career thus far. In a golden period during 2006 and 2007 he was part of the Italian World Cup winning squad and the AC Milan winning Champions League team.
With a total of 46 goals in 106 appearances over his three years at Fiorentina is evidence to suggest that Gilardino could still offer a great deal to the Premier League.
