Genoa are reported to have slapped a €50million price tag on a major Liverpool and Tottenham attacking target, while Manchester United are in pole position to land a Benfica full-back, according to Friday’s European press.
GENOA SLAP €50M PRICE TAG ON LIVERPOOL, SPURS TARGET
Genoa have reportedly slapped a €50million price tag on wantaway striker Krzysztof Piatek.
According to Radio Kiss Kiss, the Italian outfit have already rejected a €25m bid from Napoli for the forward, who has also been linked with Liverpool, Spurs, Juventus, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
The report goes on to state that Genoa want double that figure for the 23-year-old, who has scored 13 goals in eight appearances this season, while they are maintaining that they will not consider selling him until next summer.
The latest reports are in stark contrast to those earlier on Friday when Corriere Dello Sport claimed that Genoa were willing to sell the player in January but then wanted him loaned back for the remainder of the season.
