The six Bologna starlets that every European club wants to sign

The six Bologna starlets that every European club wants to sign

Bologna can be considered the giant-killers of this Serie A campaign. Roberto Donadoni’s appointment as the team’s new coach last October was decisive for the Felsinei to make a shock U-turn after a tragic start to the season.

After Delio Rossi’s sack, Bologna drew against Roma, Lazio, Fiorentina and Juventus, beating Napoli and Milan as well. The team’s average age is 27 year-old – one of the lowest  in Serie A – and many Bologna starlets have been linked with moves to the best European sides next summer.

CM.com’s Emanuele Tramacere is telling us who they are and where they could end up.
 
AMADOU DIAWARA: 18 year-old holding midfielder. He’s probably the most surprising player in Serie A considering also that he was playing for San Marino in Italy’s Lega Pro (third division) last term. Modern midfielder he gives his best when he plays in front of the defense. Bayern Munich have almost find economic agreement with his entourage, though Chelsea, Inter and Bayern Munich are also keeping tabs on him.

GODFRED DONSAH: Born in 1996, he is a very dynamic central midfielder. Juventus are in pole position to sign him next summer, despite Inter’s interest.

ADAM MASINA: Two goals and four assists for the 22-year-old left-back this term. Inter scouted him in Serie B last season, but today Juve, Napoli and Roma are the most interested in signing him.

IBRAHIMA MBAYE: The product of Inter academy had a difficult start to the season, but is slowly claiming more and more playing time. Some Ligue1 clubs have already sounded out on his availability to move at the end of the season as well as Andrea Stramaccioni’s Panatinaikos.

ERICK PULGAR: Chilean midfielder, someone calls him the ‘new Vidal’. Juventus were after him at the beginning of the season, but he has now lost his starter status at hands of Saphir Taider due to some physical hassles too.

LUCA RIZZO: 23-year-old wide player. He joined Bologna on a seasonal loan last summer and the Felsinei will make his move permanent at the end of the season for a fee in the region of € 6 million. Fiorentina have been scouting him, though Bologna would like to keep him to increase his value in the transfer market.
