Genoa director Giorgio Perinetti has confirmed there are talks ongoing with Milan for Krzysztof Piatek on whether they can strike a deal or not.

He adds that the talk will take place just as soon as they are done with their encounter today.

“Nothing has been defined yet, there are steps to be taken,” Perinetti told Sky Sport Italia, according to Football Italia.

“There’s an important game today, but also the transfer market and we all know we will sit down and talk to Milan after the game to discuss whether the deal can be concluded or not.

“We have a difficult decision to make and we have to see what is worth it for us, who can fit in with who, as for example Milan have to see if Gonzalo Higuain is going to Chelsea in order to get Piatek. We’ll talk it over today.

“I can’t go public with the details right now, we have had a chat and we’ll see if it’s possible to close the gap on some situations.

“We’ll see, if Piatek does leave, who will leave. Stefano Sturaro is on his way and we are looking for reinforcements in midfield, while if Piatek goes then we’re keeping a close eye on the striker market too.

“The market in general at the moment is not one that can keep hold of players, but who can replace them adequately. We don’t want to seem like a selling club, that’s just how it is now.”

When asked if defender Cristian Romero will join Juventus, he said:

“One day… He’ll play for us this season and the next, then we’ll see. Juve are certainly the club who have worked the most on him.”
