Genoa favourites to sign Cassani

Genoa are set to make a January transfer bid for Fiorentina defender Mattia Cassani, according to reports in Italy.

Tuttosport claim that the Grifone are interested in the 29-year-old, and are to make a move for the former Juventus youth product during the winter break.

Roma and former club Palermo are also keen on the full-back, but Luigi Del Neri's team are in pole position claim the Turin-based newspaper, with a €4.5million fee likely to pique the Viola's interest.

Cassani has only played a bit-part for Vincenzo Montella’s side this season, playing just six games.
