It is reported that Peruvian teenage talent Andy Polo will complete his transfer to Genoa on Sunday for $1.5m.
The 17-year-old is expected to fly in some time this evening with agent Jose Bartra and his father Amador to sign the contract.
‘La Joya’ is due to arrive from Universitario de Deportes and sit in the stands for tomorrow’s Serie A game between Genoa and Udinese.
It remains to be seen when he will actually begin playing for the club, as it could be in June 2012 or even January 2013.
