Radu loaned back to Genoa

Inter have officially signed Ionut Radu but loaned the goalkeeper back to Genoa for the season.

Inter announced on their official website that they had exercised their €12m option to buy back Radu.

He also impressed for Romania during their run to the European Under-21 Championship semi-finals.

Gerson headache for Roma

Gerson is causing problems for Roma, as he will only accept a transfer to Flamengo, but the Brazilian club won’t reach the €10m asking price.

According to multiple sources including Sport Mediaset, Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, the midfielder has his heart set on Flamengo and will turn down any other destination.

He already has done, rejecting moves to Dynamo Moscow and Genoa over the last couple of weeks.

The issue is that Roma want at least €10m for the 22-year-old and Flamengo are not prepared to pay that sum.
