Genoa are willing to let Giuseppe Sculli leave for Roma this month, but only if they get Matteo Brighi in return.
The former Under-21 international is a transfer target for Claudio Ranieri's ambitious Giallorossi outfit.
Sculli, who was very close to joining Inter in the summer, is a versatile attacker who is rated highly by some in the Italian game.
After five years at Marassi, Genoa are apparently ready to let him leave for a bigger club in January.
However, Rossoblu chief Enrico Preziosi is looking for the best deal possible for the Juventus youth product.
Given that Roma don't have mass amounts of cash to spend because the club is currently up for sale, Preziosi is ready to do a player-swap.
Although Roma goalkeeper Alexander Doni has been suggested as a possibility, Genoa are more interested in Brighi.
The Italian midfielder was targeted by Genoa in the summer but he remained in Rome. Parma are also keen on the Azzurri international.
