Gilardino set for Genoa

Alberto Gilardino could be the latest big name player to leave Fiorentina as whispers of a move to Genoa get louder.

The Viola have already allowed Sebastien Frey to join the Grifone and it seems the Italian international will follow him.

According to Mediaset, there are just a few details separating the 2006 World Cup winner with a switch to Marassi.

Fiorentina valued the striker at €18m at the start of this window, but it is being claimed that they will now accept a cash plus player deal.

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has allegedly offered €11m and a half share in midfielder Houssine Kharja for Gila.

The Moroccan has returned to Genoa this summer after spending the last six months of 2010-11 on loan at Inter.

French giants Paris SG have also been linked with the former Siena creative midfielder.

Fiorentina fans haven't been impressed by the club's selling policy this summer and yesterday's training session saw boss Sinisa Mihajlovic verbally clash with protesting supporters.
