Catania have confirmed they are “resigned to losing Alejandro Gomez” to Metalist Kharkiv. “He’ll go abroad over the next few days.”
The report had emerged that Genoa were trying to hijack the deal, but appear to have failed.
“Metalist? We are resigned to losing Gomez. He’ll go abroad over the next few days,” President Antonino Pulvirenti told ItaSportPress.
“If Genoa did make an attempt to intercept the negotiations, it was a very weak one.”
Argentine ‘Papu’ Gomez had been a transfer target for Inter, Napoli and Milan in recent months, but is now heading for Ukraine.
“As for Maxi Lopez, he is a Catania player who is training with us. There are a few offers, but I don’t think Torino are among them. He could well remain with us.”
