Bologna join Heinze hunt

Bologna are considering a proposal for ex-Manchester United defender Gabriel Heinze and former Chievo goalkeeper Lorenzo Squizzi.

The Rossoblu are still struggling financially after a chaotic year that saw numerous changes of ownership and a three-point penalty for irregularities.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, they intend to make a surprise swoop for free agent Heinze.

The 33-year-old Argentine centre-back is available after terminating his contract with Olympique Marseille.

Bologna are also interested in another free transfer, goalkeeper Squizzi, whose contract with Chievo expired this summer.

The 36-year-old spent the last six campaigns at Chievo and is now also tracked by Serie B outfit Torino.

Squizzi would again be a reserve, as Bologna signed Jean-Francois Gillet from Bari this week.
