Napoli are on the verge of sending Amato Ciciretti to Genoa on loan with option to buy and a counter-option.
According to Sky Sport Italia, the 24-year-old right-sided winger is heading to Marassi.
It would be a loan deal with option to buy at the end of the season.
However, Napoli would retain a counter-option in order to bring him back to the Stadio San Paolo.
Ciciretti arrived as a free agent after his contract with Benevento expired, although he spent the last six months on loan at Parma, helping them to promotion from Serie B.
