Genoa are working to whittle down their squad, with Oscar Hiljemark heading to Bordeaux and Andras Schafer loaned to Chievo.
The Grifone have been very active on the transfer market this summer with new Coach Aurelio Andreazzoli moulding the team to his preferred shape.
The challenge now is to cut down the numbers and a deal was completed today, as midfielder Schafer joined Chievo Verona on loan for the rest of the season.
Meanwhile, Sky Sport Italia claim Hiljemark is in negotiations for a move to Girondins de Bordeaux.
It would be a permanent transfer for the Sweden international, as he has only one year left on his current Grifone contract.
Sportitalia report that Genoa are trying to purchase forward Anastasios Donis from Vfb Stuttgart, which would be a return to Italy after his short-lived spell at the Juventus academy.
