Emanuele Giaccherini looks likely to sign for Genoa over the summer, according to reports in the Italian Press.
The midfielder left Juventus for Premier League outfit Sunderland last summer, but despite a relatively successful time personally, the club are on the verge of relegation from the top-flight.
As such, the Italy international is set to leave the Stadium of Light, and return to Italy.
Il Secolo XIX write that Genoa have been in negotiations with the player, and are confident they can sign him during the off-season.
