The Italian full-back has been linked with a move back to Serie A this summer, with Napoli and Juventus reportedly showing an interest.

With the Serie A transfer market closing on Monday, Dossena's agent Roberto La Florio believes the chances of the player returning to Italy are slim.

"I am about to arrive in Milan,'' said La Florio to calciomercato.it. "I know nothing regarding those rumours (Juve and Napoli).

"I have read those stories myself it's only rumours. I don't think he will return to Italy, it's difficult for an agreement to be reached today. I really think it's too late.''

Dossena is said to be keen on a return to Serie A despite only moving to Anfield last season from Udinese.
