Rossi has been with Juventus since 2012 but did not make an appearance for the senior team in Serie A, instead heading out on loan with Brescia, Valladolid, Cordoba, and Pro Vercelli.

He’ll be 26 at the end of the year, a tad removed from his 24 caps for the Italy U-21 side. His seasons with Valladolid and Cordoba were both at the La Liga level.
