Kharja on verge of Viola

The agent of Houssine Kharja is confident that his client will soon complete his move from Genoa to Fiorentina.

"There is already an agreement between the two clubs," Beppe Galli is quoted as saying. "Houssine knows how important this opportunity is.

"There are no problems in relation to agreeing personal terms with Fiorentina. The operation is on the right track."

It's understood that the Viola have agreed to pay the Marassi outfit €3m for a 50 per cent co-ownership deal.

Galli is understood to have held talks with Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino on Tuesday.

The Moroccan has spent all summer looking for a new club after Inter opted against signing him outright following his six-month San Siro spell.
