Genoa target AC Milan youngster
Saponara featured last season in Serie B for Empoli, making 18 appearances and showing flashes of genius which secured a move back to parent club Milan for the current campaign. He has also hit the net three times in 19 appearances for the Italian U21 team and is considered an exciting prospect.
However, as reported by Tuttomercatoweb, the youngster may look at a move away from Milan to guarantee regular football and Genoa have expressed an early interest in bringing the player to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.
Liverani has also looked at making a move for trequartista Alan Ruiz of Argentine club San Lorenzo as well as Chievo’s Adrian Stoian should the move for the Milanese player fail.
Whether the Rossoneri would consider letting Saponara leave after having lost their opening game to Hellas Verona on Saturday evening remains to be seen.
