SERIE A - Midfielder Hernani completes medical with Genoa
After reaching an agreement with Parma, the Brazilian-born midfielder underwent routine medical examinations. All that is missing is the announcement and the signature on the contract.
Hernani joined Parma from Zenit St Petersburg for €6.5m in 2019, having previously represented Club Athletico Paranaense, Joinville, and Saint-Etienne.
The 27-year-old scored seven goals with three assists in 33 Serie A appearances for the Ducali last season.
Brasileiro Serie A side Gremio was interested in securing his services but the right-footed midfielder preferred to continue playing football in Italy after Parma’s relegation to Serie B.
Hernani will strengthen Genoa's midfield which comprises Stefano Sturaro, Nicolo Rovella, Milan Badelj, Mike Eyango, Valon Behrami, and Stefano Sabelli.
