Genoa reject Borriello option

Genoa have categorically dismissed reports that they are interested in signing unsettled Roma striker Marco Borriello.

"We're talking about nothing," Rossoblu sporting director Stefano Capozucca told Radio Mana Mana on Thursday.

"This story is without foundation."

Borriello is available for transfer and stories suggested that Genoa could target him given their difficulties in landing Alberto Gilardino of Fiorentina.

The Marassi outfit know Borriello well as he scored 19 goals in 35 Serie A games for them in 2007-08.

Roma would want at least €10m for the Italian international, the fee they had to pay Milan for him this summer.

Borriello moved to the Olimpico on loan after rejecting a Juve move a year ago, but with the forced option to buy.
