Back in mid-December 2017, we covered a story from Italy sending Genoa right-back Aleandro Rosi to either Leeds United or Sheffield (which club wasn’t specified), but nothing came of it.

The 30-year-old, whose contract runs out in June of this year, however, still has multiple suitors, and you could even consider them an upgrade.

According to Corriere dello Sport, both Bournemouth and Brighton have expressed a ‘concrete interest’ in signing the defender, although when for hasn’t been specified.

Considering we’re currently in the middle of the January transfer window, you would think a move could be done now, with Genoa unable to ask huge amounts of money with just six months left on his contract, but the option of a free transfer could be too good to pass up for both the Seagulls and the Cherries.

Neither side are in desperate need of new blood in the role, yet a younger options than Bruno, Liam Rosenior or even Simon Francis could be of use to Chris Hughton and Eddie Howe.

This is the first we’ve seen of this interest, so we’ll wait and see if it becomes a thing before jumping to any conclusions.
