Wigan spent big on Boselli's services in 2010, with a prolific strike rate in his homeland bringing the Argentine striker to the attention of clubs in Europe.

The 27-year-old has, however, struggled to reproduce the kind of form which has seen him capped four times by his country since arriving in England.

He has netted just four times for Wigan during limited appearances and has taken in loan spells at Genoa and former employers Estudiantes in the last two seasons.

Boselli claims to have enjoyed the time he spent in Italy and is hoping that Wigan will grant him a move if clubs from Serie A come calling again during the January transfer window.

"Before the start of this season, my agent told me that Genoa wanted to take me back but Wigan blocked a sale," Boselli told calciomercato.it.

"I would have liked to go back to Genoa and show my true value, because the first time I had the misfortune to get injured and had little opportunity to impress.

"Other Italian clubs have also asked about me, but Wigan said 'no'.

"It is still my desire to play in Serie A because Italian football is more suited to my characteristics."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
