Kucka agent claims interest

San Siro giants Milan and Inter are not the only two Italian sides keen on Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka.

"He is not liked by just those two Serie A clubs, there are others in Italy too," agent Emil Kovarevic told TMW.

"He is of interest to a lot of sides, but there has been nothing concrete and nobody has found an agreement with Genoa anyway.

"We'll now see what happens over the next few weeks.

"Could he leave Genoa this summer? Let's say that there is a possibility."

While the representative did seem to cautiously open the door for an exit, the club had previously insisted that he would remain for now.

"Kucka will stay here and he'll play for us next season," Rossoblu chief Enrico Preziosi stated last month.

"That will still be the case even if I received an offer of €30m.

"There are three clubs after him, but we have already identified one outfit with which we'll talk to about the player's future.

"There are talks already open with a club whom we have had several transfer dealings with in the past."

Genoa signed Kucka in January for €3m from Sparta Prague. A midfielder, born in 1987, he is also a Slovakian international.
