Bologna and Sampdoria are reportedly considering exchanging Michele Pazienza with Enzo Maresca this month.
Pazienza has only appeared in nine League games for Bologna so far this term, totalling just 584 minutes of action.
Maresca, meanwhile, has appeared in just one game after being re-integrated into the side following the appointment of Sinisa Mihajlovic as new Doria boss.
