Genoa have announced that Roma will complete the signing of Panagiotis Tachtsidis over the next 48 hours.
“Everything is already agreed,” Rossoblu sporting director Stefano Capozucca told Voce Giallorossa in an interview.
“There is a problem, but it doesn’t have to do with Tachtsidis – it has to do between Roma and Andrea Bertolacci.
“Everything will be resolved by Tuesday.”
The 21-year-old Tachtsidis has been specifically requested by new boss Zdenek Zeman who, while in charge of Pescara last season, was impressed with the player’s form at Verona.
Tachtsidis is a midfielder who was signed by Genoa in 2010 from AEK Athens. He’s also spent time on loan at Cesena and Grosseto.
He’s set to move to the capital in a co-ownership deal, while Bertolacci – who has spent two years on loan at Lecce – may head to Marassi in exchange as part of the agreement.
