Boselli confirms Genoa loan move

January 12, 2011

Wigan striker Mauro Boselli could be set to join Genoa on loan until the end of the season.

Boselli has struggled to make an impact at the DW Stadium since arriving in the summer for a reported £6.5 million from Estudiantes.

The Argentinian posted on Twitter in his native Spanish he was set for a new challenge in the remaining months of the campaign.

''Six months at Genoa. I am very happy,'' he said.

Genoa president Enrico Preziosi told Sky Italia: ''Boselli is arriving. We are very happy because he is a striker that covers our demands.''
