Genoa chief Enrico Preziosi is reportedly considering the future of Coach Alberto Malesani.
The Rossoblu sit mid-table after collecting seven points from five games, but consecutive defeats to Chievo and Parma are worrying club officials.
As a result, and despite wins over Lazio and Catania, Malesani's job at Marassi is under severe threat already.
Malesani was only appointed in the summer after his heroics at Bologna saw him replace Davide Ballardini at the Stadio Ferraris.
Should Malesani be axed, there are a number of options available to Preziosi in terms of a replacement.
Former Palermo boss Delio Rossi is being widely tipped as a candidate, but there are some healthy alternatives.
Stefano Pioli, sacked by Palermo in pre-season, is an option too, as if former Lecce tactician Gigi De Canio.
The latter is also being linked with Bologna should the Stadio Dall'Ara outfit axe Pierpaolo Bisoli after their poor opening to 2011-12.
