Granqvist: 'I want Lazio move'

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.”
