Gigi Del Neri is being linked with the Genoa job once the current campaign comes to an end.
Rossoblu chief Enrico Preziosi is set to make another coaching change after replacing Alberto Malesani with Pasquale Marino this term – before recently recalling Malesani.
According to reports in the port city, Preziosi is looking for a new tactician to re-launch the outfit in 2012-13.
Siena’s Giuseppe Sannino is liked, but it seems as if he may move to Palermo at the end of the season to replace Bortolo Mutti.
Del Neri has been out of work since he left Juventus last summer after the Turin giants brought in Antonio Conte.
The former Chievo man knows the city well given that he guided Sampdoria into the Champions League during the 2009-10 campaign.
Genoa are just one place and two points above the drop zone after a terrible run of form. The Grifone have gone 10 games without a win in Serie A.
