Ghana striker Caleb Ekuban will complete a move from Trabzonspor to Genoa this week, GHANAsoccernet.com understands.
The 27-year-old is on the verge of completing a move back to Italy after a two-year spell in the Turkish Super Lique.
The Ghana international has been a subject of intense interest from clubs across Europe with Celtic and Genoa believed to be the front-runners.
But it appears the Serie A side have stolen the match off their rival suitoirs with the Ghanaian forward set to complete a move to Genoa by the close of the week.
The deal is believed to be worth €2m plus performance-related bonuses, as cited by Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia.
He plays as a support striker or a centre-forward and found the net 11 times in 33 games for Trabzonspor last season, along with contributing four assists to his teammates.
The 27-year-old has three goals in nine senior caps for Ghana, but was born and raised in Italy.
Ekuban came up through the Chievo Verona youth academy, going on to represent lower level clubs like Sudtirol, Lumezzane and Renate.
After a spell at Leeds United in 2017-18, he moved to Trabzonspor for €1.2m in 2019.
