'Ranocchia sale was intelligent'

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi thinks his decision to sell Andrea Ranocchia to Inter in January is "intelligent."

Inter have agreed to pay €12.5m for the remaining 50 per cent stake of the Italy international centre-back's contract.

The Nerazzurri had paid half that figure just to co-own Ranocchia in the summer, leaving Preziosi with a grin on his face.

Inter had initially planned to conclude the deal at the end of the season, but they brought talks forward after Walter Samuel suffered a serious knee injury.

Roma to swap Pizarro for Sculli?

There are reports that Roma are prepared to hand David Pizarro over to Genoa in exchange for Giuseppe Sculli.

The Giallorossi need a replacement for Julio Baptista, who is considering offers from England, Spain and further afield.

Sculli would fit the bill, as he is a versatile figure who can play in a trident attack, wide or deeper role.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Genoa are open to the trade, but only if it includes Pizarro.

Genoa: 'Inter close to Ranocchia deal'

Inter “are close to a deal for Andrea Ranocchia,” confirms Genoa President Enrico Preziosi, who also makes a bid for Juraj Kucka.

Now that new Coach Leonardo is in place, the Nerazzurri look to make their first signing of the January transfer window.

“Inter have the problem of needing to replace Walter Samuel following his injury, while we have to give away Ranocchia,” Preziosi told Sky Sport Italia.

“They already own half of Ranocchia and he is already destined to join them, but he was meant to make the move in June.

Brighi ignores Genoa option

Matteo Brighi will remain at Roma until the end of the season despite again attracting the attention of Genoa.

"Their interest in him is dated, seeing as Genoa had already made an approach for the player during the summer," revealed agent Vanni Puzzolo.

"I think a January move is impossible too, as I can't see Roma letting go of a player who has only just extended his contract until 2014.

No Napoli interest in Criscito

Napoli are not one of the many clubs interested in Genoa and Italy full-back Domenico Criscito, his agent has revealed.

The Azzurri have been linked with the left-back in recent times, but Andrea D'Amico has rubbished that link.

"I actually spoke with Napoli only yesterday and this apparent interest was not even mentioned," D'Amico noted. "As a result, I feel I can dismiss the story.

"It's hard to predict what will happen in the transfer market, but I can say that there is some important interest in Criscito.

Paloschi and Palladino swap clubs

Parma's Alberto Paloschi and Luca Antonelli will join Genoa in January, with Raffaele Palladino and Francesco Modesto moving in the other direction.

Reports this evening are suggesting that terms were finalised earlier today in Rome, with the moves set to be made official on January 3.

Genoa will pay €7m to the Tardini outfit in total, a figure which sees them take total control of left-back Antonelli but only a half-share in striker Paloschi.

Palladino joins Parma in a co-ownership too, but Modesto's move is permanent.
