El Shaarawy is just a medical away from completing his move from Genoa to Italian champions Milan.
"He's virtually a Milan player," his agent Roberto La Florio told Radio CRC on Monday afternoon. "He just has to have his medical."
The 18-year-old will join Milan after they netted 50 per cent of his contract from the Marassi outfit for a fee of around 10m.
"He will immediately be a part of the Milan squad," his representative continued. "He has good prospects for the future and I'm sure that he will do well."
