The agent of Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi has revealed his client could still make a possible move to an Italian club during the summer transfer window only if the right offer arrives.

The 24-year-old reccently signed a contract extension with the Yellow Submarines until 2016, but Federico Pastorello hinted at the possibility, as well as Rossi's recent performance for the Azzurri againts Germany in an international friendly.

"It does not surprise me that Rossi played well against Germany," Pastorello told Radio Sportiva in an interview. "Whoever knows him knows his quality and with some confidence shown in him, he could get a starting XI spot.

"The coach makes the choice and they should not be put into discussion. Giuseppe has scored more than 20 goals and his future as an Azzurri could only get better."

Pastorello admits that an offer from Tottenham did come in, but was quickly rejected by the club.

"Giuseppe has a contract clause of €40 million. Tottenham had offered €35m this winter, but Villarreal said no because it came in the final days of the transfer window, as well as him being an important player. I am convinced that in future - we shall see whether in the summer - him leaving, even for much less.

"He has settled well where he is, but he is Italian and there is the will to return to Italy, but the contract renewal was made because of his will to stay at the club.

"[Tommaso] Ghirardi had made an offer of €8.5m previously. I am also looking for big clubs ho may be interested in a co-ownership deal, but I am not finding what I am looking for. Fiorentina also tried to sign him, but there was not a real interest in him, and he decided to stay with Villarreal," he concluded.
