Brighton and Burnley watching Bologna midfield pair

Brighton and Burnley are watching Bologna midfielder Mattias Svanberg.

Gazzetta dello Sport says the Premier League duo have been scouting the 20 year-old Swede this season.

But their interest in Bologna talent doesn't end with Svanberg, with it emerging both Brighton and Burnley are also interested in his Bologna teammate Riccardo Orsolini.

Scouts from the two English clubs were present for Bologna's 2-1 victory over Atalanta this week. Orsolini played a full 90, while Svanberg had 30 minutes as a second-half substitute.

Having been on the books of Juve for two years, Orsolini signed permanently with Bologna this past summer.
