Fulham have been linked with Bologna’s French midfielder Mourad Megni. The 18-year-old is described as the future Zinedine Zidane and Fulham boss Jena Tigana is ready to pay £2m for the U-18 international.
“I have talked to Fulham and Jean Tigana is a man I really respect. He is not afraid to use young French players and it would be an honour to play under him. However, I am still a Bologna player, although it would be tempting to move as the backroom staff are all French,” says Megni.
Roma have been reported to have expressed an interest in former Lazio hero Giuseppe Signori.
The Bologna striker admitted on Sunday that his four year stay at the Dall’Ara could end this summer and sources on Tuesday suggest that Roma are set to make an offer for the ex-international.
Speculation states that the capital outfit are set to beat Milan for his signature by offering Bologna cash and the loan signing of Antonio Cassano.
The Giallorossi are set to table £3m and the Under-21 international, who would be a welcome addition to the Rossoblu squad for the new campaign.
However, one major stumbling block seems to be Signori’s allegiance to Lazio. Having spent six season with the Biancocelesti – he topped the scorers’ charts three times while there – he may not agree to a move to deadly rivals Roma.
Other transfer news suggests that Roma defender Aldair is a summer target for Sporting Lisbon. The Brazilian will leave the Olimpico after 12 years at the club once his contract expires in June.
Meanwhile, Bologna are set to sign former captain Michele Paramatti from Juventus. His agent Bonetto said: "Michele will definitely leave Juve at the end of the campaign and it is his intention to return to the Dall’Ara."
