Aaron Hickey visited Bologna this week, according to Sky Sport Italia, but the Hearts defender is wanted by Milan, Bayern Munich and Aston Villa.
The 18-year-old Scottish talent is primarily a left-back, but can also play on the right or in central defence.
Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio claims Hickey was in Bologna over the last few days to visit their training ground and meet with coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.
However, he has not yet given his response one way or the other.
There is significant interest around Hickey, who had been approached in January by Milan, while Aston Villa are also ready to swoop closer to home.
German newspaper Bild maintains even Bayern Munich are in negotiations for Hickey.
