Report: Emanuelson awaiting Genoa interest

SportItalia journalist Alfredo Pedullà claims Urby Emanuelson is not convinced by a transfer to Atalanta, and is awaiting to see if Genoa’s interest could become concrete.

The Giallorossi had agreed to a fee for the Dutchman with the Bergamo-based club, who were unable to come to terms with the fullback. Atalanta has continued contacts with Emanuelson to reach a deal, but the player is still not convinced about moving to the club. In the last few days, however, Genoa have approached Roma for the player and Emanuelson will, reportedly, put a pause on any move in the hopes that a switch to the Genovese can occur. Furthermore, Sky Italia claims that Rudi Garcia has blocked the move of Emanuelson to Atalanta after the Dutchman’s agent, Mino Raiola, met face to face with the leaders of Roma.
