The Grifoni have made an offer for the most wanted player in Italian football, Sergio Floccari.
Just days ago, Napoli closed the door on a potential swoop for Atalanta’s main man Sergio Floccari, a player who is reportedly being tracked by over half of the clubs in Serie A.
With this in mind, it did not take Genoa long to express their interest in the player, as their president Enrico Preziosi publicly declared that his club may consider making a move for the 26-year-old.
In fact, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Grifoni may have already put a bid together for the former Messina man.
The reports suggest that a €12 million offer is on the table, with Atalanta having the option of taking the a full cash payment, or the choice of taking €9.5 million cash, plus one of Genoa’s players who are on loan in Italy or abroad.
If Floccari were to join Genoa, it would be his second stint at the club, following the time he spent there back in 2002 and he is certain to strike-up a lethal partnership with Diego Milito, but only if the latter stays on.
Meanwhile, Atalanta have reportedly made a move of their own, as they have offered €2.5 to acquire the services of Lecce’s 31-year-old hitman Simone Tiribocchi.
