Stephan El Shaarawy is just a medical away from completing his move from Genoa to Italian champions Milan.
"He's virtually a Milan player," his agent Roberto La Florio told Radio CRC on Monday afternoon. "He just has to have his medical."
The 18-year-old will join Milan after they netted 50 per cent of his contract from the Marassi outfit for a fee of around €10m.
"He will immediately be a part of the Milan squad," his representative continued. "He has good prospects for the future and I'm sure that he will do well."
The attacking midfielder has only played three Serie A games for Genoa and 27 in Serie B during his loan at Padova this term.
