French reports claim Genoa are interested in Rennes midfielder James Lea Siliki, but negotiations are extremely difficult.
Telefoot maintain the first offer on the table was a loan with option to buy at the end of the season for €5m, also paying his full salary during the six months.
Rennes gave the response that they wanted a paid loan and to keep 50 per cent of his selling on fee.
As things stand, writes transfer expert Simone Rovera, Genoa are far from convinced that this is a good deal for the 24-year-old.
He made 10 appearances between Ligue 1 and the Champions League so far this season.
