Interest abroad for Donovan heats up

Italian and Spanish sides after US legend signature 

Recently in a Fox Sports 1 interview with Landon Donovan he said that he was getting some "interesting offers" from overseas.

Many articles and links to Donovan have come out saying Italian clubs such as Hellas Verona an AC Milan are interested. 
A source close to LA Galaxy organization has confirmed that indeed an Italian team is interested, and that team is Genoa. 

Genoa has only recently been on the tail of Donovan. Manager Fabio Liverani was told from a scout to watch the last few games of this years Gold Cup where he saw Landon play some of his best soccer in years. While no deal has been offered, Donovan's agent has held talks with President Enrico Preziosi in the past week.

The source also said that Donovan is flattered to be associated with a team of Milan's stature, but hasn't heard from them.

A source from Spain has suggested a La Liga side is also interested in the forward. More information on that in the coming days.
