Juventus youngster Andrea Favilli is expected to join Genoa on loan with an obligation to make the deal permanent next summer.

The 21-year-old striker is currently on tour with the Bianconeri in the U.S. and is expected to head out on loan for the 2018/19 season.

Genoa have long been in the lead and a deal is expected to be finalised today between the Grifone and the Bianconeri.

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that Genoa will sign Favilli on a one year loan deal costing €5m, with an obligation to sign him outright next summer for €7m.

Juventus will retain a buy-back option however, and will be able to bring him back to Turin in 2020 for €16m or 2021 for €23m.
