Benatia considering Parma offer

Medhi Benatia is reportedly on his way back to Serie A for Parma, after two years in Qatar with Al-Duhail.

He is no stranger to Italian football, having played for Udinese, Roma and Juventus.

The Morocco international would bring valuable experience to Parma, as he has 153 Serie A games under his belt.

Genoa reconsider Schone and Benatia

With the arrival of new coach Davide Ballardini, Genoa are expected to transform in January, including Medhi Benatia and the return of Lasse Schone.

The Grifone sacked Rolando Maran to bring in Ballardini, who debuted with a 2-1 victory away to Spezia on December 23.

His style is very different to that of Maran and there are likely to be big changes in the squad come January.

The easiest to implement is the return of a player who is already on their books, but was frozen out over the summer.
