Bologna will reportedly launch an approach for Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of the Swede's contract at Los Angeles Galaxy expiring next month.
The 38-year-old joined the Californian side in March 2018 and has scored 52 goals in 56 MLS games, including a stunning brace on his debut.
Ibrahimovic has hinted towards a return to Italy having previously enjoyed spells with Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan.
Speaking in an interview with Radio Anch'io Sport, Bologna director Riccardo Bigon said: "Over the last few months, Ibra and Mihajlovic have been in touch, also because of a difficult period for Sinisa.
"They have been sharing opinions about the Swedish player's future, and he is the only one who will be able to decide where it lies.
"Over the next few months, we will get to know where his future lies, we still don't know where he will go."
Bologna are managed by Sinisa Mihajlovic, a good friend of Ibrahimovic, with the pair working together at Inter in 2007 and 2008.body check tags ::
