Reports claim Genoa are targeting a loan deal for Sassuolo and Italy Under-21 striker Gianluca Scamacca.
Genoa are close to signing Mario Balotelli but Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia state they could be about to pair him with Scamacca.
The broadcasters agree a season-long loan is being worked on, although Sportitalia warns Parma could yet hijack the move.
The 21-year-old spent last season at Serie B side Ascoli, scoring nine goals in 33 appearances.
Meanwhile, defender Jawad El Yamiq has left the Grifone to join Spanish side Real Valladolid.
El Yamiq, 28, has penned a four-year contract with Valladolid, who beat rivals Getafe to his signature.
