After Italy’s exit from the European Championships, Calafiori is currently on a break, but in the next few days, confrontation is expected between his representatives and the management of Bologna to decide on his future.

In such a scenario, Bologna are already looking at options to replace the 22-year-old.

Corriere di Bologna claim the Serie A side have targeted the signing of Marseille defender, Leonardo Balerdi, to replace Calafiori.

Sartori, technical director, would like to keep the Italian but if he leaves, he likes the profile of Balerdi, who has earned two caps with Argentina.
