Roma midfielder Marquinho has reportedly turned down an approach from Genoa and the Grifone will now look elsewhere.
The Brazilian was seen as in talks with Enrico Preziosi’s club over a proposed switch this midseason, but is reported by Sky Sport Italia as having rejected their advances.
Subsequently, Genoa are expected to move away from the 27-year-old and towards other transfer targets this month.
