Alessandro Matri is close to joining Genoa on loan with Sime Vrsaljko sold to Milan.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the negotiations between these very friendly clubs are on the verge of completion.
Matri proved a flop with the Rossoneri and was loaned out to Fiorentina in January, but did not fare much better there.
It is hoped the former Juventus and Cagliari centre-forward can rediscover his form at Marassi.
Matri would be a replacement for Alberto Gilardino, who seems ready to accept an offer from Guangzhou Evergrande.
Milan are due to bring in Croatian international defender Vrsaljko, reportedly on a permanent basis.
