Genoa have supposedly already wrapped up a summer transfer deal for Cesena defender Steve Von Bergen.
The Rossoblu were linked with the Swiss international last month, but no switch took place before the January window closed.
However, according to reports in the peninsula on Thursday, the 28-year-old will be playing his football at Marassi next term.
Von Bergen joined Cesena in 2010 from Hertha Berlin and played a significant part in the team which survived the drop last term.
The centre-back has made 20 Serie A appearances for the Seahorses for far this season.
