Genoa medical for Pinilla

Mauricio Pinilla is close to finalising his move from Cagliari to Genoa, as he arrives for medical tests today.

The two clubs were widely reported this week to have agreed to a €1.2m deal for the Chile international, although other reports indicate a total of €2m will be transferred.

With it believed that the forward has also provisionally agreed to an initial two-year contract with an option for a third, he has been reported as arriving in Genoa today to undergo medical tests.

Expected to today complete formalities on the move, Pinilla will end a two-and-a-half-year association with Cagliari, during which time he has scored 22 goals in 63 Serie A appearances.
