Genoa President Enrico Preziosi admits “Inter are interested in Rodrigo Palacio, but I'd only sell him for Goran Pandev.”
Since former Rossoblu Coach Gian Piero Gasperini took over at San Siro, they have been linked with a bid for hitman Palacio.
“It's true, Inter are interested in Palacio, so we'll see if we manage to finalise this deal or not,” confessed Genoa President Preziosi on Radio Radio.
“We talked about it already and I will not sell Palacio just for money. If Pandev accepts a move to Genoa, then we can do this. If not, then Palacio will stay with us.
“After Alexis Sanchez, I think Rodrigo is the best trequartista playing in Italy right now.”
Other options have been suggested to Genoa, but Preziosi is focused only on Pandev.
“McDonald Mariga is a very good player, but I already have Juraj Kucka and just signed Kevin Constant.
“Emiliano Viviano is not on our wish list. Eduardo is our first choice goalkeeper, so if he goes then we have other options: they include Marco Storari, Sebastien Frey and a foreign shot-stopper.”
