The Gila jewelery shop: from Martinez to Gudmundsson: Genoa’s possible transfer men

Mission accomplished. Alberto Gilardino’s team also beat Thiago Motta’s Bologna, from whom they took four points out of six in the two matches, and surpassed a certain Gian Piero Gasperini to become the best newly promoted Genoa in Serie A, 48 points of the 2007-2008 season against the 49 of the one just concluded. A result that is the fruit of the work of the Piedmontese coach and his staff, together with the club and the players on the pitch, the latter good at carrying the values ​​and DNA transmitted by their coach during training onto the pitch. And the fans cannot help but appreciate the exploits of the team which can now rely on several players who have grown and developed in these two years between Serie B and the top division.

Gudmundsson is tempting for everyone
A real jewel that exists around Villa Rostan with the big names who would have laid their eyes on several players. The first is without a doubt Albert Gudmundsson, protagonist with 37 games played between the championship and the Italian Cup with 16 goals and five assists. Inter and Juventus like the Icelandic a lot but they would also have put the player in their sights abroad. In a recent interview with SportWeek he wanted to reiterate how well he is in Genoa: “I will leave Genoa only for a crazy opportunity. Because if as a child I dreamed of the Premier League, now I have changed my mind: here is life. So soon me and the Genoa we will sit at the table and find the best solution for me and for them.”

From Martinez to Vitinha
Another player who could have a market is Josep Martinez. The impact of the Spanish goalkeeper with the Italian reality was important. Reactive between the posts, the rossoblù number 1 also proved to be invaluable with his feet. According to the newspaper La Repubblica there is talk of a valuation of around 25-28 million euros and in the last few hours, probably not at those figures, it would be on Inter’s notebook. For the moment we are only talking about hypotheses and there is nothing concrete. Surely some piece will be sacrificed on the market given that Genoa’s next negotiation session will be controlled (as much goes out, so much must go into the company’s coffers). However, evaluations will soon also be made for Vitinha’s redemption from OM, a very welcome profile for coach Gilardino who on Friday evening, commenting on the kiss on the shirt after the Portuguese’s goal, declared, smiling and it should be underlined: “I hope that the club has seen and whoever is responsible can intervene to give me a gift”.
