Francesco Lodi is on the verge of joining Genoa from Catania after arriving in the port city for his medical.
The Grifoni have wrapped up a deal for the Italian playmaker who is looking forward to a new chapter in his career.
“Catania was an important experience for me,” the former Udinese player told the Corriere Mercantile. “I’ve grown and I’m now ready for Genoa, very ready.
“I don’t like making promises, I’ll look to do my talking on the pitch. What I can guarantee is that I’ll give my all, as I have always done.”
The 29-year-old, who was wanted by both Milan clubs in January, joined Catania in 2011 from Frosinone.
