Skysports.com understands Bologna are lining up a move for Northern Ireland international Liam Boyce.
Boyce is currently at German giants Werder Bremen after joining them from Cliftonville last September.
The highly-rated forward has been playing for Werder's Under 23 side, which is the equivalent of their reserves, but he is now considering a move in search of regular first-team football.
The 19-year-old has established himself as a regular in Nigel Worthington's Northern Ireland squad and he is keen to safeguard his place.
A number of English and European clubs are believed to have expressed an interest in Boyce, with Bremen thought to be willing to let him move on.
Serie A outfit Bologna have invited Boyce over to Italy to train next month and the player will spend a week with them in a bid to win a move.
