The Argentina forward, who arrived at the DW Stadium from native outfit Estudiantes last summer, has failed to make an impact with the Latics, scoring just once in 12 appearances for the Premier League club. Boselli's lack of form has prompted speculation of a loan move for the 25-year-old, with Italian club Bari understood to be interested in securing his services. And now Serie A rivals Genoa have announced the former Boca Juniors man is their primary target in this month's transfer window. "I like Boselli, he is our aim," Genoa owner Enrico Preziosi told Primocanale. "He's an interesting player in perspective. "He played with (Rodrigo) Palacio (at Boca Juniors), they know each other. "We will try to seize the best opportunity."
