Stefano Antonelli, director of Serie A club Siena has confirmed to Italian newspaper Tuttosport that Genoa is the favourite to sign Portuguese central defender Luís Neto to a permanent deal.

“At this moment, it is still being workeed out. We will have to see what happens in the following days, the interest in (Neto) continues to grow,” said Antonelli. He added that they value Neto at 8 million Euros.

Siena continues to languish at the bottom of Serie A with only 11 points in 20 matches played, but Neto has been one the club’s top perfomers this season.

Neto signed from C.D. Nacional just this summer for a reported 1.7 million Euros and Genoa seems determined to sign the 24-year-old before richer clubs make offers. He has been linked in recent weeks to Juventus, AC Milan, Napoli, AS Roma and Turkish club Fenerbahçe.

His good performances earned him a call-up to Paulo Bento’s Seleção for some recent World Cup 2014 qualifiers but did not see any game action.
