Report: Genoa dream of signing Piatek after serious injury to Kouame

By Oliver Fisher -

Genoa are in the market for a striker following the serious injury to Christian Kouame, and they have reportedly set their sights on an AC Milan star.

It was confirmed on Sunday that Kouame had ruptured his ACL whilst playing for the Ivory Coast U23s, which could see him sidelined for six months.

Now, the Rossoblu are in dire need of attacking reinforcements, and according to il Secolo XIX – via MilanNews.it – they have three potential names in find.

The first in Hammarby striker Muamer Tankovic. Formerly of Fulham, the Swedish international has netted 14 goals in 28 games so far this season.

Former Milan man Andrea Petagna is also mentioned as a potential target, with the 24-year-old having netted 16 goals last season helping SPAL to a comfortable mid-table finish.

Finally, the outlet claims that Genoa’s ‘dream’ attacking reinforcement is still Krzysztof Piatek, who they had for just a few months before Milan snapped him up in the January window for €35m (as per the Guardian).

La Gazzetta dello Sport – as cited by Calciomercato.com – reported on Sunday that if Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns to the Rossoneri in January, Piatek would be allowed to leave on a six-month loan.
