The agent of Aussie midfielder Carl Valeri is waiting to open talks with Bologna about a move.

The Sassuolo star has always been regarded highly by Bologna chief Roberto Zanzi and a move could be on in the coming days.

Agent Luca Urbani said: "I've spoken to Zanzi several times and we'll sit down and make a final decision at the end of the championship.

"Bologna are finishing things off in a spectacular way and that obviously interests Valeri.

"But this doesn't mean he will leave Sassuolo. They will always have first option."
