Alberto Gilardino is leaning towards accepting a transfer to Marcello Lippi’s Guangzhou Evergrande.
The Genoa striker has been called out to China by his former Italy Coach, as they won the 2006 World Cup together.
Genoa confirmed this week that he is considering his options and discussing the move with his family.
The club already accepted a €5m offer and it is reported Gila is on the verge of accepting.
He would be reunited with his former Bologna teammate Alessandro Diamanti, who joined Guangzhou Evergrande in February.
