Genoa after El Shaarawy, Rossi

Genoa are looking for a star striker and their prime candidate is either Milan's Stephan El Shaarawy or Fiorentina's Giuseppe Rossi.

The performances of Leonardo Pavoletti are not sufficient to earn the Grifone a spot in the mid-table, and sources suggest they are now looking for an altogether different type of attacking player.

El Shaarawy has been loaned out to Monaco, but the team has apparently dropped the 23-year-old, and the Rossoneri must now find him a new team urgently.

Rossi, on the other hand, is looking to move away from Fiorentina, where his scant playing time is jeopardising his place at Euro 2016.

Tuttomercatoweb claims that Genoa are set on at least one of these two strikers to help raise them from their unenviable seventeenth spot.

The site further reports that the club also probed for Sassuolo's Antonio Floro Flores, but were shut down by Coach Eusebio Di Francesco.
