Genoa and Italy striker Alberto Gilardino is a transfer target for MLS outfit Toronto FC.
According to Sky Sport Italia market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the North American side are set to make a January bid for the 31-year-old.
The forward’s agent, Beppe Bozzo, has already held initial discussions with Toronto officials to hear their offer.
The club are allegedly prepared to offer the player a three-year deal worth €7m, before taxes, in total. They are ready to hand over €6m to Genoa for his services.
Gila, a 2006 World Cup winner, returned to Marassi in the summer after a successful loan spell at Bologna.
He has three goals in nine Serie A games so far this season.
