Inter and Bologna close in on deal for midfielder
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to the Italian giants for several weeks now as the Beneamata look to reinforce Walter Mazzarri’s midfield ahead of the new season.
Sky Sport reports that the two clubs continued talks over the telephone on Monday and are expected to meet later on in the evening to close the deal.
The report states that Taider would join the Nerazzurri on a co-ownership deal with €5.5 million and the loan of Uruguayan midfielder Diego Laxalt going to the Rossoblu. Bologna would then have the option of purchasing half of Laxalt at the end of the season.
With only details remaining it is believed that a deal will be concluded by Tuesday at the latest.
Taider scored three goals in 34 appearances for Bologna last season as they finished in 13th place.
