Not Just Fiorentina After AZ Alkmaar Ace Moussa Dembele - Agent

Fiorentina have been constantly keeping an eye on AZ Alkmaar striker Moussa Dembele in recent months and his agent Patrick Vervoort admitted earlier this week that the 21-year-old was on the verge of completing a move to the Tuscan outfit.

However, he retracted his remarks later on and has now told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf that Dembele has lots of other suitors in the peninsula.

“It’s not just Fiorentina,” he said. “Several Italian teams are following him.”

There have been reports over the past few weeks that Milan and Juventus were eyeing the young prospect, who has been instrumental in his club’s triumph in the Eredivisie this term, netting 10 goals in 23 league appearances.

But latest rumours emerging in Italy claim that Genoa have now stepped in and are hot favourites to secure his services.

The Grifoni will have a vast war chest at their disposal this summer after agreeing to release Diego Milito and Thiago Motta to Inter, and are also hot on the heels of veteran striker Hernan Crespo, who will become a free agent next month.

Moreover, Rossoblu president Enrico Preziosi has already announced the signing of hitman Sergio Floccari from Atalanta.
