Genoa swoop for Amione

Genoa are reportedly on the verge of snapping up 17-year-old Belgrano defender Bruno Amione for €5m.

According to Sky Sport Italia, a deal is in the closing stages for the teenage Belgrano youth product.

He is a centre-back in the mould of Cristian Romero, confirming Genoa’s excellent scouting work in Argentina.

Amione recently won the Under-17 South American Cup with Argentina, but is recovering from a fractured metatarsal in his right foot.

“He is a very respectful and humble lad, a great person who always focuses on respect for his rivals,” noted U17 Argentina Coach Pablo Aimar.
