Agent Of Genoa Midfielder Houssine Kharja Claims Inter Deal Is Close

Inter ready to snap up Kharja from Genoa...
Inter are on the verge of completing their move for Genoa midfielder Houssine Kharja, claims the player's agent Giuseppe Galli.

But Galli suggested Napoli were also trying to squeeze in between Inter and Genoa for the 28-year-old.

His revelations come after earlier indications suggested Kharja was in Milan to sign a deal.

"The negotiation is moving forward and I hope it will be closed today," Galli told

"Napoli? They were interested in Kharja."

Meanwhile, Inter confirmed the extent of the injuries suffered to both Dejan Stankovic and Ivan Cordoba following their Coppa Italia win over Napoli.

A statement on the club's official website reads:

"Supervised by professor Franco Combi, the F.C. Internazionale medical staff performed diagnostic procedures on Dejan Stankovic and Ivan Ramiro Cordoba this morning to assess the injuries sustained by the players in the second half of last night's Coppa Italia quarter-final against Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo, which the Nerazzurri eventually won 5-4 on penalties.

"Stankovic's test results revealed he has pulled a muscle in this right thigh, while Cordoba was diagnosed with a dislocated shoulder.

"Both players, who were already suspended for Sunday's Serie A Week 22 match against Palermo, have begun their recovery programmes at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti in Appiano.

"Tomorrow the medical staff will run tests on McDonald Mariga, who received physiotherapy today."
