According to the football transfer rumours in Italian Media, Genoa are tipped to sign Benfica attacking midfielder Adel Taarabt.
The Moroccan international has signed a five-year contract with Portuguese champions Benfica from Queens Park Rangers on a free transfer in 2015.
Since his arrival from Queens Park Rangers, Taarabt has scored one goal in 7 games for Benfica B team.
Genoa want new faces on board to get them firing at the right end of the table.
According to the rumours in Italy, Taarabt has already given a verbal agreement that he approves the deal.
Representatives from Genoa and Benfica will meet during the weekend to finalize the deal.
If manager Ivan Juric can get that sort of form out of him from the days when Taarabt was a member of Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan, then there’s obviously no doubt he has the caliber to be a star at the Genoa.
