Genoa could turn to Andrea Caracciolo as their efforts to sign Alberto Gilardino from Fiorentina have stalled.
The Italian international is known to have been at the top of their transfer wish-list, but agreeing terms with the Viola has proved to be problematic.
As a result, the Marassi outfit are now taking a look at the Brescia man who is available for sale following relegation.
The 29-year-old was being heavily linked with a switch to Chievo Verona, but that move has also stalled.
Genoa are allegedly ready to offer €3m for the big target man who has also played for Sampdoria and Palermo in his career.
