Genoa have warned Juventus they can’t offer Ciro Immobile to Torino as part of the Angelo Ogbonna transfer.
The reports suggested Under-21 international striker Immobile – who is co-owned by Juve and Genoa – was the key to tempting Toro into selling Ogbonna.
“Torino have showed an interest in Immobile, but I don’t think there are any offers,” Genoa President Enrico Preziosi told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Juventus cannot include him in any negotiations without us, seeing as we have the sporting rights to the player.
“Therefore if Juventus want to use Immobile, they have to pay us €4m. Otherwise, Immobile will stay here.”
