Genoa interested in Immobile swap deal - Preziosi

The Genoa striker could be in line for a return to his hometown club ahead of next season, according to the Rossoblu's chief executive
Ciro Immobile could be making a switch to Napoli in the summer in return for Partenopei players, according to Genoa’s chief executive Enrico Preziosi.

Immobile, who was born and raised in Naples, is part-owned by both Genoa and Juventus. The original plan seemed to be for the Rossoblu to sell the former Italy Under-21 cap back to the Turin side, but now it seems that Napoli have entered the mix.

The deal could be sweetened with Genoa executive Enrico Preziosi, admitting his team could have interest in certain Napoli players, he told Sky Sport Italia: “If he is of interest then we can sit down and discuss it – especially as we could be keen on a few Napoli players.

“However, when you talk about Immobile, you have to remember that he is co-owned between us and Juventus.”

Immobile’s stock has been on the rise since a stellar season on loan at Pescara in the 2011-12 season, where he scored 28 goals in 37 appearances.
