SERIE A side Chievo will send a representative to Japan this week to begin negotiations with Kashima Antlers' star Atsushi Yanagisawa, according to reports in Japan.

The Flying Donkeys are to send representatives to begin talks with Antler's official Mitsuru Suzuki about taking the 25-year-old striker to Italy.

Coach Luigi Del Neri will be hoping that Yanagisawa will be an apt replacement for the recently departed Massimo Marazzina, who switched to Serie A rivals Roma after a bust-up with the man in charge.

Chievo are said to have been monitoring the Asian star's progress for some time now and hope to add the promising forward to their ranks in the summer.
