Continuing their quest to distance themselves from the relegation zone, Genoa are scanning the market for additional help in the Final Third.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Genoa have contacted Eredivisie club NEC for Venezuelan goalscorer Christian Santos. The 27-year old is valued at €3 million and Genoa are confident they can finalize a deal to give Gasperini’s squad the boost they need up front.
Santos has been in superb form this season, scoring 13 goals and collecting an assist in 20 games for NEC in their return to the top flight. Last season, while playing in the Eerste Divisie (2nd-tier of Dutch Football), Santos finished with a career-high 23 goals and 10 assists in 34 games.
