Massimo Ambrosini: Linked with a move to Watford this summer

Ambrosini, who spent last season at Fiorentina after 18 years with Milan, is a free agent this summer and has been linked with a move to the Championship side due to their Italian connections.

Newly-promoted Cesena - the club where Ambrosini started his career – has also been mooted as a potential destination after the 37-year-old was not offered an extension to his one-year deal in Florence.

Ambrosini made 21 Serie A appearances during the last campaign and Sannino spoke highly of his fellow Italian amid reports of a switch to England.

"Who wouldn't like to train him? He’s one of the most serious Italian players, a really good professional," he told Tuttomercatoweb.it. 

Sannino only replaced Gianfranco Zola as Watford boss late last year but has regularly been linked with a return to Italy, where he managed the likes of Siena, Palermo and Chievo Verona.

However, the 57-year-old insists he plans to honour his contract with the Hornets as he plots a return to the top flight.

"I have another year's deal with Watford. Contracts are done also to be annulled, but I want to live this adventure here," he said.

When asked if there had been interest from Bari as reports had suggested, Sannino replied: "Not only them. In Italy I had a few other situations but I wanted to continue here.

"Our aim? Premier League."

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
