Bologna have missed out on striker Roque Santa Cruz after the Paraguay international signed for Malaga.
The forward spent last season on loan at the Andalusian club, and after his contract expired at parent club Manchester City, Bernd Schuster men were quick to snap up the 31-year-old.
Stefano Pioli’s side had been in talks with the goalscorer regarding a move, but he has opted instead for La Rosaleda.
Santa Cruz scored 12 goals in 45 matches last term for the Bosquerones.
