Ghana's No. 1

Genoa deny Juventus deal for Boakye-Yiadom

Published on: 27 December 2011

Italian side Genoa say they are yet to receive official requests regarding their Ghanaian sensation Richmond Boakye-Yiadom.

The 18-year-old has been in top scoring form since joining Serie B side Sassuolo and has been linked with a host of clubs.

Reports in the Italian media claimed Juventus were lining up a bid for the Ghana youth international during the January transfer window.

But that has been curtailed by Genoa Sporting director Stefano Capozucca.

"We are ready to comment on these rumours, but only when they are founded or in the final phase of negotiation," Capozucca told

"At the moment it is very easy to talk of the transfer market because for now there is absolutely no news. It all remains a rumour and in that sense we needn't comment."

Boakye-Yiadom has scored eight goals in 20 appearances for the Emilia-Romagna outfit.
