Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has revealed he's been knocked back in bids for two midfielders.

"I've spoken to (Cagliari president) Massimo Cellino, but he doesn't want to sell Pasquale Foggia," said Preziosi. "There is also the issue of the 50 per cent Lazio own."

Meanwhile, Preziosi also revealed: "We have also asked Juventus about Marco Marchionni, but they don't want to lose him because of the injury to Mauro Camoranesi."
