With Genoa struggling to climb up the table, the Grifoni have identified an Empoli centre-half to remedy their issues in the defensive zone.
Genoa’s defensive form has been spiraling downwards in recent weeks and Gasperini is seeking reinforcements in the January window to stop the bleeding. The objective is to find a new left center-back with Gianluca Di Marzio reporting that Empoli’s Federico Barba is a strong option for I Rossoblu.
Genoa are discussing the possibility of contacting Empoli to find out the transfer details and conditions for the 22-year old Rome native. The club have suffered five straight defeats, conceding five goals and scoring only once over that span. They also suffered a surprise defeat to Alessandria in the Coppa Italia.
Barba has made 6 appearances for Empoli this term without a single yellow or red card to his name.
