Talks between Genoa and Lazio have broken down, but Andreas Granqvist admits: “I hope it can be resolved. It’s a great opportunity for me.”
The Swedish international defender has long been a target for the Biancocelesti, but negotiations hit an impasse. 
“The negotiations between Genoa and Lazio are a long story, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens,” said Granqvist on international duty.
“I hope it can be resolved. I am happy at Genoa, but going to Lazio is a great opportunity for me.
“I like the idea of joining a club that plays in Europe almost every year. In any case, I am prepared to respect my contract.”
