In search of a new job after walking away from the Ukraine national team following the 2020 Euros, Andriy Shevchenko has landed on his feet at Genoa.
The former striker knows Serie A well, having spent many years playing there for Milan, as he joins his new club with them sitting 17th in the league, drawing four of their last five games.
They’ve only one won so far in 12, and the hope is that a few signings, including Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko, could go a long way to helping turn things around.
That’s what Il Secolo XIX, relayed by Sport Mediaset, claim that two names are already on the list, with it claimed that the Ukrainian, who has struggled for time under Pep Guardiola this season, could be a target for Shevchenko.
That’s for the January window, and although we doubt this would be for a permanent transfer, a loan would certainly go a long way for the Manchester City player.
He’d be under a manager who knows him very well from their time in the national team together, where he would certainly do better than his current five appearances in all competitions for the Etihad club, likely slotting in immediately in the first-team for Genoa.
One to keep an eye on.
