Amiri set to leave Leverkusen for Genoa – reports


Berlin (AFP) – Germany midfielder Nadiem Amiri is on the verge of leaving Bayer Leverkusen for Italian side Genoa where he is expected to undergo a medical this week, according to reports on Monday,

The 25-year-old, who was born in Ludwigshafen to Afghan parents, has so far made five appearances for Germany since his debut in 2019.

However, he has started only three Bundesliga games this season for Leverkusen with rising star Florian Wirtz, 18, preferred in the attacking midfield role. 

Amiri won the Under-21 European championship in 2017.

He is expected to undergo a medical on Tuesday before initially signing on loan with an option to buy with Genona under German coach Alexander Blessin, who has taken charge following the sacking of ex-Ukraine captain Andriy Shevchenko after just 11 games in charge.

Genoa are currently second from bottom in Italy’s top-flight while Leverkusen are third in the Bundesliga.
