Serie A side Genoa are closing in on the January transfer of Roma midfielder Marquinho, according to Sky Sport Italia.
The broadcaster claims that the two clubs have already agreed a deal for the 27-year-old Brazilian and all that is left is to finalise personal terms.
The South American, full name Marco Antônio de Mattos Filho, moved to the Italian capital in January 2012 from Fluminense.
He has made 10 League appearances so far this term, but he has totalled just 327 minutes.
