Mario Alberto Santana is expected to wrap up his transfer to Genoa at some stage on Wednesday.
The Argentine, born in December 1981, will join the Rossoblu from Napoli after the two clubs agreed terms.
Santana was signed by the Azzurri in 2011 from Fiorentina on a free transfer, but he has since spent time on loan at Cesena and Torino.
The South American, a wide attacker, scored four goals in 27 Serie A games for Torino in the previous campaign.
