The forward born in New Jersey, is in tryouts with the LA squad, hoping to fill the eye of Bob Bradley to stay at the organization.
Guiseppe Rossi will have a new opportunity to rebuild his career as he's in tryouts with Los Angeles FC. The Italian-American striker hasn't had a stable journey in football due to injuries, but now he will have the chance to come back as he shares the dressing room with Mexican, Carlos Vela.
Despite the MLS approving his arrival, AS USA learned that the former Italian international would be monitored for a few days, hoping to convince coach Bob Bradley so that he can sign a contract with the Los Angeles team.
"There are no promises; we are going to check things and analyze if it will work out," said Bob Bradley about Rossi's situation.

Just until a few months ago, Pepito Rossi, was training with Manchester United, one of the first clubs in which he started as a professional, after Italian team Parma, sold him when he was 17 years to the Red Devils.
Rossi was not registered to play the team run by coach Solksjaer, so he had to keep looking for other options, among which MLS was always one of them.
The striker wanted to play in the Spanish League or Serie A, however, in the absence of opportunities, he will have to settle for looking to earn a place in the LAFC squad.
Rossi traveled to Los Angeles on Tuesday, and this Wednesday afternoon had his first training with the 'Black & Gold' team, looking to prove that he still has high qualities to play soccer.
Carlos Vela's fit
The Mexican striker Carlos Vela trained with all his teammates, and everything indicates that he will be in Sunday's opening match between Los Angeles FC and Sporting Kansas City at Banc of California Stadium.
Vela was injured during the last preseason game of the LAFC, although everything seems to indicate that it was only a scare, the former Real Sociedad, may be ready for the MLS opening day this weekend.
