Genoa are hoping to sign Bordeaux’s Henri Saivet as Adel Taarabt looks to be on his way to Fulham.
The Queens Park Rangers playmaker had been linked with a move to the Grifone, but with news that he will play his football at Craven Cottage next term , the Marassi side are assessing other options.
One of those, according to respected journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, is the 22-year-old France U21 international.
Genoa have already enquired about signing the young attacker, and are expected to hear back from the Ligue 1 side this week.
Saivet was ever-present for Bordeaux last term, playing in 34 games and scoring eight goals.
