It is widely reported that former Cagliari Coach Pierpaolo Bisoli has agreed a deal to take over at Bologna.
Alberto Malesani is expected to move on, most likely towards Genoa, in the summer after securing their safety despite a three-point penalty.
It's claimed Bisoli held negotiations for most of today with the Bologna staff, including President Albano Guaraldi, Vice-President Maurizio Setti and new technical director Salvatore Bagni.
Bisoli could be confirmed on the Bologna bench as soon as tomorrow with a three-year contract worth €550,000 per season plus performance-related bonuses.
It is another attempt at Serie A for the Coach, who took Cesena to two consecutive promotions before leaving in May 2010.
He joined Cagliari instead, but was fired on November 15 2010.
