AC Milan may be able to land one of their midfield targets in a cut-price January deal, a report claims, as Genoa get ready to make a sacrifice.
Nicolo Rovella made his professional debut with Genoa in a 3–2 Coppa Italia win over Ascoli on 3 December 2019 and has caught the eye since, making three appearances in Serie A so far for the Grifone including one in the recent derby draw against Sampdoria.
According to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato.com), the player does not seem willing to renew his contract with Genoa despite attempts by the Rossoblu management to sit down at a table with his agent, Beppe Riso.
This is a problem for Genoa because it means that Rovella as things stand would leave on a free transfer next June when his contract expires, something which could force president Enrico Preziosi into selling him in January.
That means that Rovella would be sold to a top-tier club at a price significantly lower than that of his real market valuation, with Milan, Inter, Juventus and Roma all interested, but Genoa could ask for him back on loan as part of an agreement.
