Genoa considering Borriello

Genoa are reportedly in talks with Roma over a possible deal to take back striker Marco Borriello this summer.

Borriello, who spent the second half of last season on loan with Juventus, is back again with the Giallorossi this summer but is on the lookout for a new club.

Genoa, with whom Borriello enjoyed his most prolific career form in the 2007-08 season when he netted 19 times from 35 appearances, are reportedly keen to try to work out a deal.

The Grifone have already concluded deals with Roma this week for Andrea Bertolacci and Panagiotis Tachtsidis and are set to also complete movement over the weekend involving Mattia Destro, Valerio Verre and Gianmario Piscitella.

Talks for 30-year-old Borriello have reportedly focused on two possible scenarios, with the Marassi outfit pushing for a loan deal or a €3m co-ownership plan.

President Enrico Preziosi hinted earlier this week that he would be talking to the capital club about Borriello.
