Genoa striker Acquafresca reveals Fulham contact

Genoa signing Robert Acquafresca has revealed contact with Fulham.

The Italy U21 striker doesn't want to stay with Genoa and told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Now I'm tranquil and I'm keeping my concentration for the Under-21 European tournament.

"Obviously I'll also think about my future, which is set to be decided in coming days.

"I want to underline a thing - I have never said I want to go where I'd be guaranteed a regular starting place.

"I want only to have the possibility to play - to have my chance at the same level with the others.

"I'm used to having to fight to earn my place."

Inter and Genoa recently failed to find an agreement about a possible move for the 21-year-old, while Acquafresca also revealed Fulham's interest.

"Fulham called me personally on the phone. Each hypothesis must be considered - I could also try to go abroad as others have done," he said, although the striker has also being linked with Lazio, Atalanta, Parma and Juve.

"I don't want to say what side I prefer. Surely, playing in Europe with Genoa or Lazio would be a great result.

"Juve, then, are a really beautiful surprise."
