Laxalt wants 'a big club'

Diego Laxalt’s agent maintains there is “no preference between Italy or abroad, as long as it’s a big club,” as he is ready to leave Milan.

The Uruguayan wing-back only joined a year ago from Genoa for €14m plus performance-related bonuses, but was given just 29 competitive appearances all season and is not part of Marco Giampaolo’s plans.

“There is no news yet, but on Tuesday afternoon we have a meeting planned at Casa Milan to speak with the Rossoneri directors,” agent Ariel Krasouski told Milannews.it.

Genoa and Milan want Ankersen

Genoa have joined Milan in chasing FC Copenhagen right-back Peter Ankersen, claim Sportitalia.

The Denmark international turns 29 next month and joined FC Kobenhavn in 2014, although there was a brief loan spell at RB Salzburg in 2015-16.

He contributed one goal and eight assists in 47 competitive games last season.

Primarily a right-back, Ankersen can also play on the left side of defence when needed.

Sportitalia noted the Dane had already been linked with Milan, but now Genoa are tracking his progress with an eye towards a summer move.

Sassuolo have denied interest in Napoli defender Lorenzo Tonelli, free agent Gabriel Paletta or Genoa striker Christian Kouame.

Director Giovanni Carnevali spoke to Sportitalia this evening and was asked about several transfer rumours surrounding the club.

Schone: Ran out of steam

Lasse Schone suggests he joined Genoa to capitalise on a lighter work load and Serie A’s late start, admitting ‘I ran out of energy’ at Ajax last season.

Schone’s move to Genoa came as a surprise to many, given he had just helped Ajax reach the Champions League semi-finals and win their first Eredivisie title in five years.

However, the midfielder turned 33 in May and confessed he was struggling to keep up with the demands of the highest level.

“It was a great season,” he told Spillerforeningen.

Coppa: Monza to face Fiorentina

Silvio Berlusconi’s Monza shocked Serie B side Benevento to set up a tie with Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia third round.

Monza won a seven-goal thriller, surviving a late penalty to beat Benevento 4-3, and face Fiorentina in the next round.

Feralpisalo, Pisa, Perugia, Salernitana, Venezia, Crotone, Spezia, Sudtirol, Cremonese and Imolese, meanwhile, all secured Serie A ties.

So did Chievo, although the Flying Donkeys needed a penalty shootout to avoid a giant-killing at the hands of third-tier Ravenna.
