A-League side looks to bolster its goal scoring stocks ahead of new season.
Big names continue to be linked to clubs in the A-League with former Juventus and Palermo forward Fabrizio Miccoli tipped to sign with the Melbourne Victory.
Following the departure of Marcos Flores the club has space in its squad for a marquee player.
And with Marco Rojas also leaving the club, the Victory in need of securing an all-round talent up front with Miccoli appearing to fit the bill.
Miccoli, 34, is a free agent after ending his six-year stay with Palermo but the possible new star is still under a cloud as to be signed by any club given under investigation for alleged extortion and has been linked with organised crime figures, having fallen out of favour in Sicily for insulting the memory of a murdered anti-mafia campaigner.
A 10-cap Italy international, diminutive forward Miccoli was hailed as an heir to the likes of playmakers Roberto Baggio and Del Piero when he joined Juventus from Ternana in 2002.
He struggled to live up to those lofty expectations, moving to Fiorentina before re-joining Juve, only to be sent on loan to Benfica.
Miccoli finally settled at Palermo, where scored 74 goals in 165 league appearances, becoming a fans favourite, although he could not prevent the club being relegated to Serie B last season.
