Bologna, it’s casting for the post Zirkzee. Pavlidis on pole, but he’s not the only name

The ambition to find something new Joshua Zirkzee it is perhaps excessive, but at home Bologna a future is being studied with another center forward in place of the Dutchman. He writes about it Corriere dello Sport, which explains how Giovanni Sartori and Marco Di Vaio are working to compile a list of five or six attackers to propose to the next Bologna coach. We start from the investments already made, over 10 million euros per Santiago Castroand about 4 to redeem Jens Odgaard.

The priority, writes the Corriere dello Sport is to find a young central striker already accustomed to the European stage, who has around ten goals under his belt. This will allow Castro to grow calmly, despite having the opportunities he does, given the need for a long squad to compete in the league, Champions League and Italian Cup.

The main objective remains Vaggelis Pavlidis, also playing for AZ Alkmaar, author of 28 goals in 33 games this year. Despite the high valuation – over 22 million euros – his contract expiring in a year could favor Bologna in negotiations. Another hot name is Fotis Ioannidis of Panathinaikos.

In addition to them, Sartori and Di Vaio are monitoring Jonathan Burkardt of Mainz, Adam Hlozek of Bayer Leverkusen, Evann Guessand of Nice and Albion Rrahmani of Rapid Bucharest.
