Report : Dzemaili to sign with Bologna and the Impact

The rumour mill is heating up around Swiss international Blerim Dzemaili as the offensive midfielder seems to be on his way out of Turkish giant, Galatasaray. The timeline of the rumours surrounding Dzemaili has been thoroughly covered by Nilton Jorge of KAN Football Club as it seems that it's only a matter of time.

Transfer expert, Gianluca Di Marzio, has continued to track the story. Dzemaili was not part of Galatasaray's squad for the Turkish Super Cup played a few days ago. As per social media, he has also taken interest in Major League Soccer's twitter account, his future destination after passing through Bologna in Serie A.

What we know and what could happen:

  • Blerim Dzemaili seems to be coming back to Serie A with Bologna FC, a league that he knows after playing for Torino, Parma and Genoa.
  • Both Bologna and the Impact have one thing in common (or more actually) : Joey Saputo as the owner. Meaning that the report saying that a multi-year contract for the player will be split between Bologna and Montreal makes sense.
  • The multi-year (3 years) contract would consist of 1 year with Bologna FC and 2 years with the Impact.

If this signing goes through, including seeing Dzemaili play with the Bleu-Blanc-Noir colors, it would be the start of a new era for the sports empire of Joey Saputo , benefiting for his clubs.
