Genoa target Malmo talent

Genoa have set their sights on Malmo’s Iraqi-Swedish trequartista Jiloan Hamad.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, talks are already at an advanced stage for the 22-year-old who can play behind the strikers or as a wide forward.

He is out of contract on December 31 and Malmo have set a price-tag on him of approximately €1m.

He scored six goals in 17 games in the Swedish Allsvenskan, plus two in five Europa League matches.

Hamad is of Iraqi origin, but plays his international football for Sweden.
