Genoa chief Enrico Preziosi is adamant his club will not make a January bid to sign Roma striker Marco Borriello.
The latter has already spent two spells in his career with the Grifone, most recently in the last campaign when he was netted on loan.
He was targeted again in the summer as part of a transfer deadline day negotiation that would have potentially seen Fabio Quagliarella leaving Juventus for Roma, with Alberto Gilardino quitting Genoa for Juve. None of those moves took place.
“Borriello and Genoa have always had a great feeling between each other,” Preziosi told Tele Radio Stereo.
“I love him, but he won’t be coming back in January. We already have Gilardino here, a player who is more adaptable to the requirements of boss Fabio Liverani.”
Borriello has scored 31 goals in 63 League games for the Rossoblu.
