Ghana striker Caleb Ekuban set for Genoa medical ahead of move
Ghana striker Caleb Ekuban’s move is nearing completion as he is set to undergo medical at the Italian club on Wednesday.
According to reports, Genoa is expected to announce Ekuban as their new player when he passes the medical.
They have both agreed personal terms with the attacker reportedly going to earn 1 million euros in a three-year deal.
The amount involved in the transfer is reportedly 2.2 million euros, the same amount turned down by Trabzonspor initially.
Trabzonspor soften their stand and accepted the amount after the striker made it clear he wasn’t going to continue at the club.
The Turkish club wanted 4 million euros for the forward Ekuban, whom they bought for 1.5 million euros from Leeds United in 2019.
Ekuban had an instrumental campaign in the Turkish top-flight last term where he scored 10 goals in 32 appearances.
The 27-year-old began his career in Italy at Mantova Youth before moving to Chievo Verona where he spent 7 years at the youth and senior levels.
He enjoyed loan spells at FC Suditrol, FC Lumezzane, AC Renate all in Italy and also FK Partizani in Albania.
