Genoa confirm Lazio talks

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi confirmed talks with Lazio over numerous players, including Andreas Granqvist, Juan Pablo Carrizo and Francelino Matuzalem.

There was a meeting today between Preziosi and Biancocelesti patron Claudio Lotito by the Tuscan seaside, but it is only the first of many.

“We’re talking about lots of things with Lotito over the next few days. We’ll see what Lazio need,” Preziosi told Sky Sport Italia.

“Granqvist? Yes, he may well be liked by the Biancocelesti, but we could also like Carrizo considering we need a goalkeeper.

“We are also going to discuss Mesto, Antonelli and Matuzalem.”

Giandomenico Mesto and Luca Antonelli are both Genoa wide men, while midfielder Matuzalem was frozen out by Lazio following a dispute this summer.

Rossoblu defender Granqvist has also been linked with Juventus and Milan, among others.
