Romero failed to secure a move to Juve last month and will see out the season with Genoa, but President Enrico Preziosi made it clear his club would try to hold on to the Argentine.

“Payment for Piatek in one go? I would’ve asked for more if not,” he told Sky Sport italia.

Prandelli: 'Genoa constructing identity'

Cesare Prandelli believes Genoa are on the right track with their January reinforcements, but “need to construct an identity.”

The Grifone have replaced Milan-bound Krzysztof Piatek with Antonio Sanabria, who has now scored in each of his two games for the club.

“President (Enrico Preziosi) is a volcano of ideas and often it pays off to follow his instincts,” Prandelli told Sky Sport Italia.

‘Piatek won’t move in January’

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi insists “no-one will move until June”, and that includes Krzysztof Piątek.

The Polish striker is behind only Cristiano Ronaldo in the Serie A scoring charts, and has been attracting interest from Napoli, among others.

“No-one will move until June,” Preziosi told Il Secolo XIX.

“We need [Christian] Kouame, Piątek and [Gaston] Ramirez. So far there’s been a lot of talk, but no offers have arrived.”

Preziosi then went on to discuss potential incoming transfers.

Preziosi fumes at 'disgraceful' refereeing

Enrico Preziosi hit out at Marco Di Bello’s ‘disgraceful’ refereeing during Genoa’s 3-2 defeat to Roma on Sunday, accusing him of ‘acting in bad faith’.

Alessandro Florenzi seemed to push Goran Pandev as he was mid-air trying to head a cross deep in stoppage time, but there was no VAR review and Preziosi disparagingly described the technology as a ‘weapon’.

“We can’t go on like this,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
