Massimo Ambrosini: The veteran midfielder is said to have held talks with West H

The veteran midfielder is a free agent after leaving AC Milan and has been linked with a move to the MLS.

West Ham have also been in talks with Ambrosini, according to his agent, but he has yet to make a decision on his future and could consider staying in Italy.

At a press conference on Friday, the 36-year-old said of the link to Fiorentina, who will be playing in next season's Europa League: "They are a great club and are coached by a great coach [Vincenzo Montella] with a really serious and intriguing project.

"If they would call me, I would gladly hear what they have to offer to me".

Ambrosini is adamant, though, he will not be thinking about retiring after Milan opted not to give him a new contract.

He said: "It is not up to me to say whether the club's decision is right or wrong. It is not a shocking thing - I am 36.

"I have given so much and AC Milan have the right to make a decision like that. I might have liked it if they had communicated it differently and earlier. I know I still want to be a player."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
