Multiple sources maintain Genoa have agreed a deal to take Italy Under-21 striker Gianluca Scamacca on loan from Sassuolo.
According to Sky Sport Italia and Tuttomercatoweb, the two clubs are very close a full agreement.
The 21-year-old forward spent time at both Lazio and Roma youth academies, with loan spells at PSV Eindhoven and PEC Zwolle.
He spent last term in Serie B with Ascoli, where he scored 13 goals in 34 games between Serie A and the Coppa Italia.
This is believed to a pure loan deal with Sassuolo, in other words there is no option for buy for Pandev at the end of the Genoa season.
They are also continuing talks with Inter for centre-back Andrea Ranocchia.
