Genoa sporting director Rino Foschi is refusing to comment on his club’s alleged interest in Juventus’ Simone Padoin.
The 28-year-old has been paired with the Marassi outfit given the possibility that he will leave Turin after Christmas.
“The window is closed right now so it is useless to talk about transfers,” Foschi told Tutto Juve.
“I’ve seen the stories in the newspapers, but we are talking about a player who would be of interest to a lot of clubs.
“For now, I would prefer to just talk about the football that is being played on the pitch.”
Padoin joined Juve at the start of this year from Atalanta, but he has struggled to get a game with the Old Lady.
So far this season, he has appeared in just three Serie A matches – all as a substitute – for a total of 51 minutes.
