Marchetti to replace Eduardo

Genoa are looking to sign Cagliari goalkeeper Federico Marchetti after Eduardo's latest howler.

The Portugal international came out of his area against Udinese on Sunday, sensationally missed the ball and allowed Antonio Di Natale to give his side a 2-1 lead.

Genoa ended up losing 4-2 to make it five games without a win in all competitions.

It's not the first time Eduardo has made a calamitous mistake since his arrival from Braga in the summer.

He cost Genoa a point against Inter in October when he flapped at a shot from Sulley Muntari.

La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that yesterday's performance is the final straw.

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has already contacted Cagliari with a view to signing Marchetti.

Talks will continue today to see if it's possible to bring in the Italy international in January.
