Both players have been linked with a move away from the Griffon this month, but they’re struggling against relegation and lie just six points above the drop zone.

“Izzo is a very important player and we want to keep him,” Perinetti explained to Sky.

Milan put Musacchio on the market

Milan could sell Mateo Musacchio just six months after his €18m transfer from Villarreal, as he rarely plays.

The 27-year-old Argentina international was signed in July 2017 and was one of the first new arrivals under the Yonghong Li tenure.

However, the defender has managed only 18 competitive appearances this season and is often benched in favour of Alessio Romagnoli and Leonardo Bonucci.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Musacchio is on the market if the Rossoneri can get someone more suited to new Coach Gennaro Gattuso’s tactics.

Genoa confirm Iturbe 'interest'

Genoa “are interested” in Roma forward Juan Manuel Iturbe, confirmed President Enrico Preziosi, after his Torino spell.

The Paraguay international was signed from Hellas Verona for €24.5m in 2014, but never lived up to his early promise.

He flopped with the Giallorossi and during loans at Bournemouth and Torino.

“We are interested in Iturbe, but it’s just interest,” Preziosi told Pagine Romaniste.

The Genoa President was also asked about Roma’s links with defender Armando Izzo.

Izzo agent: ‘Justice will prevail’

Armando Izzo’s agent is confident “justice will prevail” after the Genoa defender was given an 18-month ban.

The 25-year-old was found guilty, on first ruling, of failing to report match-fixing during his time at Avellino, with the Serie B club also given a three-point deduction.

“The 18 months comes from failing to report, not from having committed the crime,” Paolo Palermo told Tuttomercatoweb.
