[Mercao] Quaresma heading to Genoa

Inter's Ricardo Quaresma is set for a summer move to Genoa following his loan spell at Premier League club Chelsea.

Ricardo QuaresmaThe 25-year-old joined Inter from Porto after UEFA Euro 2008 but struggled and was loaned to the English club in the winter transfer window.

Genoa President Enrico Preziosi has now confirmed the Portugal winger will be a Grifoni player next term.

"There is an agreement with Quaresma and we will get him in joint ownership (with Inter) for 10million euros," he said.

Quaresma will play alongside former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo at Genoa next season after the club confirmed the Argentine players' capture from Inter.

"We should conclude Crespo's signing by Wednesday night," said Preziosi.

Crespo, whose contract with the Nerazzurri ends this summer, has scored two goals in 13 league appearances for the Serie A champions.

The arrival of the two players, and of Sergio Floccari from Atalanta, will be a blessing for Genoa coach Gian Piero Gasperini, with the club announcing last week the departure of pivotal duo Diego Milito and Thiago Motta to Inter at the end of the season.

"What does Gasperini think about this? When I told him he hugged me," added Preziosi.
