7. Giuseppe Rossi – Fiorentina
Similarly to Milito, Giuseppe Rossi is also returning from a serious injury but has shown enough in pre-season already to suggest that he is nearing full fitness.
The diminutive support striker was once a mainstay of the Azzurri squad, and he will hope to return to the international set-up as soon as possible now that he has returned to the pitch.
However, his first objective will be to play his part in Fiorentina re-establishing themselves as a giant of the Italian game. The Viola have spent well this summer to add to an already talented squad, and Rossi will hope to forge a prolific partnership with Mario Gomez.
