Antonio Barreca is on his way back to Serie A for Genoa just six months after joining Monaco for €10m.
The former Torino left-back has been given only eight competitive appearances between Ligue 1 and the Champions League, providing one assist.
According to Calcionews24, a deal is close to completion for Barreca to return to Italy with Genoa.
It should be a loan deal with option to buy at the end of the season.
If the 23-year-old is brought in, then Genoa are likely to sell Ervin Zukanovic.
