Joel Asoro signed for Swansea City from Sunderland in 2018, but was unable to really impose himself at the Welsh club.
A loan move in 2019 saw the Swedish forward go to FC Groningen, where he had mixed success. That wasn’t made permanent and he then signed on loan for Genoa in 2020.
That move came with a buying clause, which was stated as an obligation for the Italian side. However, it was still linked to Asoro meeting certain targets, and that hasn’t happened.
Indeed, since arriving in Genoa last September, the 21-year-old hasn’t made a single appearance. The only time he even got on the bench was against Hellas Verona in October and he’s been left out of every match-day squad since then.
TMW report he’s being sent back to Swansea City today, and now he faces the difficult situation of what happens next.
Earlier this month, Steve Cooper made it clear that if Asoro was to return then he wouldn’t be part of the first team squad. The player has a contract lasting until June 2022.
