Ghana striker, Caleb Ekuban has completed his mandatory medical examination ahead f his move to Italian Serie A side, Genoa.

The striker has opted to sign for Genoa this summer despite several interests from European clubs.

The Ghana international carried out the tests at Baluardo Institute in Genoa.

Ekuban will join the club from Turkish side, Trabzonspor on a three-year deal. The attacker will earn 1 million euros in the deal.

The amount involved in the transfer is reportedly €2m, the same amount turned down by Trabzonspor initially.

Trabzonspor soften their stand and accepted the amount after the striker made it clear he wasn't going to continue at the club.

The Turkish club wanted €4m for the forward Ekuban, whom they bought for €1.5m from Leeds United in 2019.

Ekuban had an instrumental campaign in the Turkish top-flight last term where he scored 10 goals in 32 appearances.

The 27-year-old began his career in Italy at Mantova Youth before moving to Chievo Verona where he spent 7 years at the youth and senior levels.

He enjoyed loan spells at FC Suditrol, FC Lumezzane, AC Renate all in Italy and also FK Partizani in Albania.

The official announcement is expected in the next few hours and Genoa have reportedly paid €2m for the attacker.
