Bologna admit Alessandro Diamanti continues to be of interest to various sides, but they still intend to keep him.
The Italian international has been linked with the likes of Milan, Inter and Juventus over the last 12 months.
“Diamanti is liked by a lot of teams,” Bologna director general Roberto Zanzi told Radio CRC on Wednesday.
“He has an important dimension as a player, he’s an Italian international too.
“We made it clear to him that we wanted to keep him and he has given us a helping hand in that regard.
“He is an extraordinary player and it has been some years since we have had someone like him in a Bologna shirt.”
The attacking midfielder, 30, was signed by the Stadio Dall’Ara outfit in 2011 from Bologna. He has scored 17 goals in 69 games for the Rossoblu.
