Gary Medel is on the verge of a transfer to Bologna after agreeing a €2.5m fee with Besiktas, claim La Gazzetta dello Sport.

There had already been reports of negotiations for the Chile international, who is returning to Serie A following his time at Inter.

Now Gazzetta transfer expert Nicolò Schira maintains Bologna have sealed a €2.5m deal and the player is also enthusiastic about the move.

His agent is now working out the details of a two-year contract worth €1.7m per year plus bonuses.
