The Moroccan international nears a Serie A return with the Grifoni reportedly being the team interested.
The 27 year old has been seeking first team football for some time since being frozen out of the first team at his current club Benfica. It is reported Adel Taarabt will join Genoa on an eighteen month loan.
While there are still some logistics to be figured out regarding who will be paying the majority of his salary, the two parties hope to come to an agreement within the next week. Taarabt formerly played half a season with AC Milan where he scored 4 goals for the rossoneri in only 14 appearances.
Genoa announced the signing of Mauricio Pinilla earlier today and are eager to add another addition to their squad. After losing the likes of Leonardo Pavoletti and Tomas Rincon, head coach Ivan Juric has made it clear he is looking for new additions to his squad throughout January.
