Palermo's Salvatore Sirigu is again being linked with a switch to Genoa after the injury sustained by Inter's Emiliano Viviano.
The latter was set to arrive at Genoa after the Italian Super Cup Final on August 6 between Inter and Milan.
Viviano picked up a knee problem at the weekend though which will rule him out of action for around six months.
Genoa have now switched their attention to Sebastien Frey of Fiorentina, but it's unclear whether they can afford him.
Frey earns €2m a season in Florence.
If Genoa can't agree personal terms with the Frenchman, then Palermo No 1 Sirigu is a much cheaper option.
The Italian international earns just €250,000 a season, although he's trying to get a pay increase in Sicily that will see him net €850,000 a campaign.
If Sirigu is released by Palermo then the Sicilian outfit could target Novara 'keeper Samir Ujkani as his replacement.
