Tuttosport says Juve are preparing to sell Fabio Quagliarella today and will seek to replace him with Gilardino, a huge Bianconeri fan.
Talks are currently centred around the form of the transfer. Juve want a straight loan, while Genoa president Enrico Preziosi is seeking €6 million to sell.
Should a deal happen, Preziosi will seek AS Roma striker Marco Borriello as a direct replacement for Gilardino.
