Bologna midfielder Amadou Diawara is expected to be sold to the Premier League this summer.
Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have been following Diawara’s progress this season.
Corriere di Bologna says his agents met with Bologna officials over the weekend to discuss his situation.
Several Serie A clubs, including Juventus, are also keen, but the money on offer from England will convince Bologna to push Diawara to the Premier League.
Bologna hope to raise €10 million for the midfielder, who arrived 18 months ago for just €80, 000.
