Genoa’s sporting director is confident his club have what it takes to keep Mattia Perin and Andrea Bertolacci this summer.
Perin has been linked with the likes of Napoli and Juventus, the goalkeeper said to be keen on joining a club in the Champions League, while Bertolacci has regained his form with Genoa, although his loan spell from Milan is up for expiry.
“Perin? We hope he stays,” Giorgio Perinetti told Primocanale.
“I understand he has ambitions, he wants to play in the Champions League and he can’t be denied of that.
“However, everything must be shared. Everyone must put something on the table, both in terms of giving and taking.
“Bertolacci? He’s always done well with Ballardini. If he receives offers from clubs at the same level, he’ll choose Genoa.
“Lapadula? He’s a player bound to us. He started this season with the handicap of a major injury.
“He’s generous, he’s had no luck in the final third, but no-one can accuse him of not being aggressive enough.
“We hope he’ll be luckier next season. He can be our forward if the team adapt to his game.
“Pavoletti? There’s a club struggling badly [Cagliari], so I won’t talk about their players out of respect.”
