Hull City are reportedly swooping for Bologna striker Robert Acquafresca, beating Livorno to the punch.
The centre-forward turns 26 next month and returned to base after a six-month loan spell at Spanish side Levante.
He had been expected to take another loan switch to Serie A new boys Livorno this summer.
However, according to CalcioNews24, Acquafresca is tempted by an offer from Hull City instead.
He has Italian and Polish citizenship. Bologna would be happier to sell Acquafresca rather than accept another loan, as he is not part of their plans.
