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.

Juventus centre-back Medhi Benatia admits “I’m struggling playing a game every now and then” and “we’ll see what happens” in January.


The Moroccan played 90 minutes against Cagliari on Saturday, but he’s played only four Serie A games so far this season.


“I’m struggling playing a game every now and then,” Benatia told La Stampa.


“Last year I did well because I had more consistency, unfortunately I don’t have it this year. It’s part of my job, and I work to always be ready, but it’s not a pleasant situation.


“It’s normal that I’m not enjoying it, I’m 31 and I want to play as much as possible.


“January? Let’s see what happens, how I’m used, if Juve still need me, if [Coach Max] Allegri wants me…


“I’m available to the team, as long as I’m here I’ll give my all. If I’m needed in the Champions League I’ll be ready.”
