Preziosi warns Juve off Immobile

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has once again reiterated that striker Ciro Immobile will not be leaving for Juventus.

Reports this week have suggested that the Bianconeri had started talks with the 22-year-old, who they own a 50 per cent share of.

But the Grifone chief has rubbished those rumours, as well as commenting on the possibility of signing Reto Ziegler.

“Immobile is too important to us,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “We do not want to talk to anyone about him.

“Juventus may have hinted at his transfer, but we are not interested in what they have to say.

“We have spoken to Ziegler,” the 64-year-old added. “Negotiations are ongoing, but we are just waiting for the approval of the player.

“He could be the final icing on our cake.”
