Bologna close to Spinazzola

Bologna are expected to speak with Juventus after their Coppa Italia encounter to discuss a Leonardo Spinazzola loan.

The 25-year-old came up through the Bianconeri academy and shone during a two-year loan spell with Atalanta.

He has struggled with injuries since then and would benefit from a loan to notch up some playing time.

According to Sky Sport Italia, tomorrow’s Coppa Italia Round of 16 tie will be the ideal opportunity to discuss bringing the left-back to Bologna.

It’s believed the player has agreed terms and both clubs are ready to go forward, so the only remaining issue is getting the all-clear from Juve Coach Max Allegri.
