Serie A outfit Bologna are thought to be interested in bringing striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to Italy.
According to Corrierre dello Sport, the club are reported to be readying a six-month contract offer for the Swede in anticipation of his current deal with LA Galaxy expiring in December.
The 38-year-old has previously enjoyed highly successful stints in Serie A with Inter Milan, Juventus and AC Milan. In 219 appearances in the competition, Ibrahimovic has scored 122 goals and provided 46 assists.
The former Ajax frontman also added considerably to his trophy cabinet in Italy having lifted four Serie A crowns and five Supercoppa Italiana.
The Swede has admitted that whilst he is unlikely to be joining Bologna any time soon, should he be tempted then he will contact the club immediately.
He said: “Mihajlovic is a friend, so if I were to choose Bologna, it’d be just for him. We have spoken recently. He told me: “Zlatan, here the others would run for you. All you need to do is stay up there and put the ball in the net”.
“I thank him, but it’s probably unlikely to happen. If I change my mind, then I’ll call him straight away, especially because I could still get 20 goals in Serie A.”
Bologna, meanwhile, have enjoyed an inconsistent start to the season having only won two out of their opening eight games.
They will hope to earn a victory on Sunday as they face bottom of the table Sampdoria and can be backed at odds of 5/6 with Betfair to win the game.
