Bologna set sights on Roma duo ahead of 2015/16 campaign

By Joe Avicolli

Bologna have reportedly set their sights on Roma youngsters Salih Ucan and Leandro Paredes as they look to strengthen their line up ahead of the new season.

The duo failed to secure themselves starting positions in Rudi Garcia’s squad last season and may be open to making a move away from the capital city club before the summer transfer window ends in order to earn more time on the pitch, though it seems like the Giallorossi would only be willing to let one of them go.

According to, newly promoted Bologna are currently focused on landing the the two 21-year-olds in the coming weeks before the upcoming Serie A campaign starts, but Roma may only be open to temporarily letting Ucan go as they still find Paredes useful in their fight for success.

The Argentine Paredes managed to score one goal in just 10 Serie A appearances last term, while the Turkey international Ucan provided one assist in just four league appearances during the 2014/15 campaign.
