Genoa: Ankersen in, Romulo out

Genoa have officially signed right-back Peter Ankersen from FC Copenhagen, while sending Romulo to Brescia.

Ankersen arrives on a permanent basis for an undisclosed fee.

Sportitalia adds he was recommended to the club by fellow Dane and new recruit Lasse Schone.

The 29-year-old scored one goal and provided eight assists in 47 competitive games for Copenhagen last season, helping them eliminate Atalanta from the Europa League playoffs.

He also has 23 caps for his country and replaces Romulo, who moves to Brescia on a season-long loan.

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.

Milan target Ankersen

Milan have reportedly set their sights on Danish right-back Peter Ankersen, who is available from FC Copenhagen for €2m.

He turns 29 in September and is only under contract until the end of this season.

The cost of signing Ankersen would therefore be in the region of €2m.

There is also believed to be interest from some Premier League clubs.

Lazio close on Vavro move

Lazio are closing on FC Copenhagen centre-back Denis Vavro for €10m, as it’s reported Watford saw their offer rejected.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Premier League side Watford made a bid for the Slovakia international, but it was insufficient.

The Biancocelesti are confident the 23-year-old favours them and hope to lower the asking price from €12m to €10m.

Vavro only joined FC Copenhagen from MSK Zilina in 2017 for €1.4m and his contract runs to June 2022.

Gian Piero Gasperini compared Atalanta’s 0-0 draw with Empoli to the Europa League play-off against FC Copenhagen. “We were unlucky.”

The Orobici dominated the game to a ridiculous degree, forcing Bartlomiej Dragowski into 17 saves and with a total 50 attempts, yet it ended goalless.

“We have regrets over the result, but were also very unlucky,” Gasperini told Sky Sport Italia.
