Chelsea, United target Genoa ace

Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly targeting Genoa defender Mario Sampirisi according to his agent Giuseppe Riso.

Sampirisi, 19, is a former AC Milan youth player and current Italian Under-21 right-back, and has been most impressive in his performances for the Rossoblu this season.

The defender has experienced a breakout season following his move to Genoa in 2011 and his eye-catching performances have not gone unnoticed with the Premier League heavyweights circling.

Riso said he has fielded a number of enquiries from Premier League clubs and that a move to England would suit the young defender.

"Chelsea and Manchester United interested in him? Yeah, they sent their scouts to follow him live but I don't know if they'll try to take him in January," Riso told tuttomercatoweb.

"Genoa do not want to sell. But I am not surprised that the Premier League clubs have their eye on him. Mario has the typical physique that British teams like. But also some Italian clubs are following him."
