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."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
