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."

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.

ou make a lot of good points, but I still find myself instinctively against anything that makes it easier for Paul Ince to get managerial roles
