Bologna Set to Beat Juventus for Montenegrin Starlet

Bologna are in pole position to land Vasilije Adzic, who was reportedly a priority target for Juventus. The apical exec of his side, Buducnost Podgorica, recently revealed that the best offer come from the Felsinei.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the two managements are discussing the details of the bid. The Rossoblù will spend €5.5M to onboard the talent, who wouldn’t transfer right away. The parties had a positive meeting in Montenegro on Tuesday.

Buducnost reportedly rebuffed Juventus, which had tendered less money than Bologna for Adzic. The Old Lady proposed €2.5M/3M. The Emilian outfit appears to have left the competition in the dust.

Sporting director Andrija Delibasic disclosed more tidbits about the operation to local publication Vijesti (via Tuttomercatoweb).

“It had been a minute since an Italian lodged such an offer for a Slavic player, especially a 17-year-old. As part of the package, Buducnost will receive 20 percent of a future sale. He’ll stay put and and help us in the title race at first.”

“Bologna have been following Adzic for some time. I think it’s very important that they count on him from next summer already, without considering loans or spells in a youth squad. They already see him as a first-team player. We’ll talk with him and his family. Our first priority is for them to be satisfied. We’ll also discuss organizing some friendlies with the Rossoblù. It’d be very nice.”
