Blackburn Rovers have confirmed that Christian Vieri is training with us and the striker could earn himself a deal at Ewood Park.
Vieri was going to train with Rovers then he wasn't but it's now official Sam Allardyce has confirmed that the 35-year-old is training with Rovers, however, a deal isn't immanent and might not happen at all.
Allardyce said on Sky Sports News: "He is obviously out of condition compared to the rest of the lads but joining us at this stage of pre-season shows a certain amount of commitment that he wants to try and play football again.
"If he has got that desire and dedication and can adjust to the physical levels of the Premier League at his tender age then we have got a major player on our hands.
"There is no harm in my point of view in watching his progress and then seeing if there is a situation where we can have him for next season.
"He also has a desire to try and get in the Italy squad for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa."
Personally I don't think that the Italian has any chance of forcing his way back into the Italian International side as Atalanta wouldn't have released the striker in April if this was still possible. I'm also not sure that a deal will happen, however, Big Sam is right there isn't any harm in having a look at Vieri as we've got nothing to lose.
