Rossi is a former Italian under-21 international who played at the 2013 European Championship finals.

His time at Juventus was spent largely out on loan, where he played for Brescia, and last season Serie B side Pro Vercelli, with spells in Spain with Valladolid and Cordoba in between.

He was released when his contract expired in the summer and is still looking for his next club, hoping to seal a switch in the coming weeks.

Hibs could be a surprise destination for Rossi to re-launch his career, with the Edinburgh side currently top of the table in Scotland's second tier.
