Inter Milan winger Ricardo Quaresma is set to sign for Genoa. The former Barcelona and Porto forward joined the San Siro outfit last summer to link up with fellow countryman Jose Mourinho. However, he struggled to establish himself with the Nerazzuri, making just 13 Serie A appearances. And with Tottenham believed to be on the brink of signing him on the final day of the winter transfer window, he opted for a last-gasp switch to Stamford Bridge, teaming up with former Portugal national team boss Luiz Felipe Scolari in West London. But, again, Quaresma has laboured, starting just one game for the Blues - his debut against Hull, which proved to be Scolari's last as Chelsea chief. Inter boss Mourinho had said only last week that the 25-year-old could still have a future with the Serie A champions. However, he now appears set for a switch to Genoa after the club confirmed he will be joining them, along with another ex-Chelsea and Inter Milan player, Hernan Crespo, this summer. "There is an agreement with Quaresma and we will get him in joint ownership [with Inter Milan] for 10 million euro," said Genoa president Enrico Preziosi. "We should conclude Crespo's signing by tomorrow night." In return, Inter Milan are expected to seal the signatures of Genoa stars Diego Milito and Thiago Motta. CHELSEA FANS!
