Bologna are again going for Marko Arnautovic, though his arrival from China could mean Rodrigo Palacio heading to Monza.
Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic has repeatedly tried to bring Arnautovic to the Stadio Dall’Ara over the last few years, but the deal never went through.
His team is in dire need of a reliable centre-forward and President Joey Saputo warned they cannot bring anyone in without first making sales.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Arnautovic should be a free agent when terminating his contract with Shanghai SIPG by mutual consent this summer.
Palacio would make way for Arnautovic, although La Trenza has no intention of retiring at the age of 39.
The Argentine could instead go to Monza, who are currently pushing for promotion from Serie B.
