Robert Acquafresca has been speaking about his options, despite insisting that he’s fully focussed on Italy’s participation in the European under-21 Championships taking place in Sweden.

It seems Genoa want the send the striker out on loan this season and Acquafresca has his preferences.

I don’t really want to reveal my preferences, but either [staying at] Genoa or Lazio would be a big result in terms of my professional career.

Fulham phoned me and I am analysing the offers I have received. I could go abroad. At the moment I am focussing on the tournament and I will decide my future in the next few days.

I have never said I wanted to join a team that would only offer me a starting role. I just hope to have the same chance as everyone else.

Lazio have refuted these suggestions that they are interested in signing Acquafresca.
