According to Uruguayan paper La Prensa, Diego Lopez has agreed terms with Genoa and will be presented to the media on December 27.

The 45-year-old coach had until recently been in charge of Penarol, but his contract expires this month.

He spent most of his management career in Italy with Cagliari, Bologna and Palermo.
