‘Genoa could try again for Hernanes’

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi admits “we could try again in January” for Hernanes.

The Grifone were attempting to sign the Juventus midfielder, but the transfer never went through, in part because Axel Witsel’s move to Turin fell-through.

“Up until quarter to 11 on August 31 we hoped to have him here,” Preziosi revealed, speaking to La Repubblica.

“I wanted to add something more, but it went like that. We could try again in January, never say never.

“The season? This year we have a different climate compared to other years, and we hope that’s a good omen because we made a lot of sacrifices.

“There are player who rejected three times what they earn here to stay at Genoa. We said no, that’s it. This is a tough Genoa.”
