Genoa could return for Achraf Lazaar in January, as Newcastle United are ready to let him leave on loan.
The Moroccan was in Italy on transfer deadline day to join the Grifone, but the transfer collapsed and he returned to Tyneside.
The former Palermo man has admitted that manager Rafa Benitez “doesn’t speak to me”, so it appears he has no future at St James’ Park.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Magpies are willing to let him leave on loan in January, and the Grifone are once again interested.
President Enrico Preziosi pulled the plug last time, but with Genoa struggling in Serie A he may well reconsider.
