Genoa are monitoring Alberto Malesani's situation at Bologna.

Malesani has fallen out with his board since the New Year.

Despite being linked with Siena's Antonio Conte and former Roma boss Claudio Ranieri, it's understood that Malesani is the preferred choice of Genoa president Enrico Preziosi.

The latter is understood to have a two-year contract offer already in place which is only missing the signature of the former Parma tactician.
