TMW: Genoa initiate contact over signing AC Milan midfielder on loan

By Isak Möller -

Rade Krunic joined AC Milan this summer for a fee of just €8m from Empoli. However, at the start of the season, the Bosnian has struggled with playing time and could thus leave the Rossoneri in January. 

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, though, it would only be on a temporary basis. The Genoa hypothesis is taking shape, as the Rossoblu have initiated the first contact with the San Siro side over signing the midfielder on loan.

Given that the Bosnian has played just 44 minutes in seven games, it certainly makes sense for both parties to go ahead with the deal. However, there is still quite some time left until January, and a lot can happen during that period.

Furthermore, it will depend on Stefano Pioli, the Rossoneri’s new manager. Unlike Marco Giampaolo, he might be inclined to give Krunic more playing time, although it seems unlikely if you consider the alternatives he has at his disposal.
