Roma line up Genoa striker to replace Osvaldo
They have already recruited Gervinho from Arsenal but Rudi Garcia does want to bring in further attacking options for the Giallorossi.
According to Il Messagero they are keen on the former AC Milan front man but the Grifoni are certainly driving a hard bargain given that they want €7 million plus Marco Borriello for Gilardino who is open to the move.
However, they are already identifying other alternatives should they fail in their attempts to bring the 2006 World Cup winner away from the Marassi.
Nacional striker Gonzalo Bueno, 20, is a target but he is ironically being chased by Genoa as well as Kuban Krasnodar.
The two other names on their list of transfer targets are Alessandro Matri of Juventus and Atletico Madrid’s Adrian.
