Bologna officials will meet at some point today to discuss the coaching position for next season – with Marco Giampaolo linked with the job.
Current boss Alberto Malesani, despite his successful campaign, will probably leave the Stadio Dall'Ara outfit in the summer.
According to whispers in the peninsula today, Giampaolo is a leading contender to take the Dall'Ara hotseat.
Giampaolo started this season at Catania before he was surprisingly replaced by Diego Simeone.
Giampaolo is a Swiss-born tactician who has also bossed Ascoli, Cagliari and Siena in the Italian top-flight.
