Genoa bid for Konko

Abdoulay Konko could be on his way back to Genoa amid reports that the Ligurian outfit have launched a bid to sign the Sevilla full-back.

The 26-year-old Frenchman had one very productive year with Genoa three seasons ago before making the move to La Liga.

Sky Italia understands Genoa are keen on a reunion with Konko after seeing their efforts to sign West Ham's Valon Behrami go up in smoke.

The Grifone have reportedly offered €4.5m for the player but it is believed that Sevilla are holding out for more.

Reports claim a deal could be done for closer to €6m, although it remains to be seen whether Genoa are prepared to up the stakes.
