Antonelli nearing Genoa extension

Despite being linked with a host of clubs, Luca Antonelli is set to extend his current deal with Genoa.

The full-back has been on the radar of several top Italian sides in recent months, including Napoli.

However, Corriere Mercantile report this afternoon that the 27-year-old is on the verge of agreeing an extension to his current deal, that would see him stay at the Marassi until June 2018.

The former Parma man is out of contract this summer, and rumours had abound that he would be on his way out of the club on a Bosman.

But the paper writes that Antonelli is happy with the terms and is set to sign on for the next four years.
