Report: Benassi close to Genoa

Fiorentina midfielder Marco Benassi is reportedly close to joining Serie A rivals Genoa.

According to Michele Criscitello for Sportitalia and Tuttomercatoweb, Benassi is not suited to Vincenzo Montella’s style of play.

That would have let in Genoa, who are in the market for midfield reinforcements, as seen by their pursuits of Gerson and Ismael Bennacer.

The 24-year-old joined Fiorentins from Torino in the summer of 2017 for €12m and has gone on to play 73 times, scoring 14 goals and providing eight assists.
