Mauro Boselli on verge of Genoa loan

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 £6.5million from Estudiantes.

The Argentinean 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.

However Wigan insist that nothing has been confirmed and he remains their player at least for the moment.
