Cagliari FC has reportedly identified Bologna’s Kevin Bonifazi as a key target to strengthen their defence, given the recent underwhelming performances of summer signings Pantelis Hatzidiakos and Mateusz Wieteska. The update comes via Corriere dello Sport, which highlights the interest from other clubs, including Frosinone and Sassuolo in the central defender.
However, the Sardinian side, under sporting director Nereo Bonato, remain tentative due to Bonifazi’s hefty wage demands of 1.2 million Euros. Further complications towards potentially signing Bonifazi have arisen from the refusal of Giovanni Sartori’s Bolognese side to contribute towards the player’s salary for a six-month loan.
Cagliari’s pursuit of the Rieti-born defender is indeed looking tougher, but they maintain a keen interest amidst the competition and financial challenges. The resolution of this transfer endeavour remains in the realm of speculation for now. Football fans and analysts will watch closely, as the winter transfer window takes shape.
Further news on this ongoing story will be reported as it unfolds.
