Genoa Counter Roma and Tottenham Advances for Attacker

Albert Gudmundsson is one of the biggest revelations of the Serie A season, and Roma and Tottenham are among the sides tracking him. The Icelandic speed demon has bagged 5 goals in 11 appearances so far.

Despite the burgeoning interest, Genoa are in a good spot to decide what to do with him and ask for a hefty figure. They are on the verge of extending his contract until 2026, Relevo’s Matteo Moretto reports (via OneFootball). He’ll get a raise as well.

That’ll give his team a lot of leverage. Still, a summer departure can’t be excluded. Roma and Tottenham have scouted Gudmundsson a few times already. More sides will likely join the race, especially if he keeps it up.

The 26-year-old decided to stay put following the promotion to help his team avoid the drop. The situation could change in 2024, but it’ll take a substantial bid to convince Genoa to let him go. They acquired him from AZ Alkmaar for €1.5M in January 2022 and he hit his stride in Serie B in the past campaign.

Our Take on Roma, Tottenham, and Gudmundsson

Despite the likely renewal, he’s not long for his current team. His versatility makes him a good fit for any side or scheme. He won’t come cheap but can’t be too expensive either given his age. The top Serie A sides better not let foreign clubs steal him from under their noses.
