Genoa look at Brighton’s Schelotto as contract ticks down

Genoa are considering a move for Brighton right-back Ezequiel Schelotto when his contract expires, Tuttomercatoweb reports.

Schelotto, 31, is likely to end his three-year stay in England at the end of the season.

And Genoa are thinking about signing Schelotto on a free transfer when he becomes available.

Much will depend on whether Genoa stay in Serie A, with the Rossoblu only outside of the relegation zone on goal difference.

Schelotto, a once-capped Italian arrived at the Amex from Sporting CP in 2017, but the move hasn’t worked out.

After 23 appearances in his debut campaign for the Seagulls, Schelotto did not make a single appearance in the first half the 2018-19 campaign.

His lack of game time led to him joining Chievo on loan for half a season before returning to Brighton.

This season, Schelotto has managed seven appearances in the Premier League, playing more before the league postponement.

However, it seems unlikely Brighton will renew his contract and that has put him on Genoa’s radar.
