Ambrosini weighing up options after Milan decide not to renew deal.
West Ham are in talks with Milan midfielder Massimo Ambrosini after the Rossoneri revealed that they would not be extending his contract.
The 36-year-old has spent 18 years at San Siro in a glittering career which has seen him build up an impressive collection of silverware which includes four Serie A titles and two Champions League winners medals.
However, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani revealed on Tuesday that they would not be renewing his deal for next season, and is therefore on the market looking for a new club with a move to the MLS touted as a possibility.
According to his agent Moreno Roggi though, it would appear that West Ham have emerged as a possible destination, as he told calciomercato.it that Ambrosini wants to continue playing.
“Obviously Massimo wants to continue playing,” he is quoted as saying by football-italia.net.
“There are some negotiations in place and we are evaluating every type of proposal. His preference would be overseas clubs, but if an offer did come in from an Italian side, we would not ignore it completely.
“At this moment we are in talks with West Ham, while we have already ruled out Major League Soccer.”
Despite his diminishing capabilities on the pitch, Ambrosini has continued to be an influential presence for Milan over the past few seasons, guiding the younger players through their first years at the club.
It is unclear as how prominent a role he would have in London, but boss Sam Allardyce will undoubtedly look to take advantage of his wealth of knowledge and experience ahead of the new campaign should they agree on terms.
