Bologna set €70m price tag on striker Riccardo Orsolini

​Bologna sporting director Walter Sabatini has revealed that striker Riccardo Orsolini is worth €70million for the clubs interesting in acquiring his signature according to The 42.

Orsolini joined Bologna on a loan spell from Juventus back in January 2018 before the deal was changed to permanent at the start of the 2019/20 season.

The 23-year-old has scored seven goals and involved himself in seven assists from 23 league appearances this season and this might be one of the reasons why Juve may want to bring him back to the Old Lady.

The sporting director was adamant that there was no buy-back clause in his contract and that whoever is interesting in the striker would have to bid higher.

“I give Orsolini a value of not less than €70m,” he told Etv on Monday.

“I repeat that he will not leave. He is followed by the national team like so many others and I think the good news is coming to Coverciano [Italy's headquarters].

“I hope he can go to the European Championship, but [Italy coach Roberto] Mancini doesn’t need my advice.”
