Serie A side Catania are on the verge of completing the transfer of Argentine youngster Gino Peruzzi.
The 21-year-old is expected to undergo his medical in Sicily on Tuesday ahead of a switch from Velez Sarsfield.
As part of the tests, Peruzzi will have the condition of his left knee ligaments examined closely given that he has picked up an injury to them.
There are suggestions that the defender may require a small operation which would see him sidelined for around two months.
