Bologna Jump Ahead of Competition for Milan Outcast

Bologna have barged into the race to sign Alexis Saelemaekers, and they could come out on top, even though Milan have precise demands. The player signed off on the transfer, which could speed things up.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri have reservations about the formula. The Felsinei propose a season-long loan with an option to buy. His side prefers a permanent deal, but they are struggling to find takers. They could accept a temporary departure, provided the counterparty pays a fee for it, and the conditions to make the transfer permanent are easy.

Bologna and Milan have scheduled a meeting to discuss Saelemaekers for Monday night. The talks have decent steam despite the hurdles. The alternative is San Josè’s Code Cowell.

The Rossoblù are looking for a versatile winger despite having already signed Dan Ndoye and Jesper Karlsson. Betis continue chasing the Belgian, but they have been overtaken. The Felsinei are trying to finish the summer strong. They are on the verge of adding left-back Victor Kristiansen from Leicester City, on a season-long loan with an option to buy, and Remo Freuler.

Our Take on Bologna, Milan and Saelemaekers

They are already in a good spot in his role having retained Riccardo Orsolini, but the more toys Thiago Motta has at his disposal, the merrier. It’s likely too late for Milan to find a team that signs him outright.
