Genoa are reportedly trying to bolster their options in midfield with Iceland international Birkir Bjarnason.
Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the midfielder would like a return to Serie A after previous spells at both Sampdoria and Pescara.
The Icelandic player is expected to arrive in Italy this weekend to follow the negotiations first-hand as his contract with Al Arabi is about to expire this month.
The former Aston Villa player was released from the Premier League club during last summer and moved to the Qatar Stars League in October last year.
The report claims that the 31-year-old also has offers from the French Ligue 1.
