Inter youth team striker Samuele Longo will play for Genoa in 2012-13, the Marassi outfit have confirmed.
The 20-year-old spent this season netting goals for the Nerazzurri Primavera side, but he’s co-owned with Genoa.
The two clubs have held transfer talks over the last 48 hours and Genoa CEO Pietro Lo Monaco is adamant that the Under-21 international will move to the port city.
“I can guarantee that Longo will be playing for us next season,” the former Catania official stated on Wednesday.
“His valuation has risen, but this did not prove to be an obstacle in our intentions.”
Longo could, in theory, star in attack alongside Ciro Immobile, the striker co-owned with Juventus who spent this season on loan with Pescara.
