Towards the end of the summer window, Leicester City defender Victor Kristiansen joined Bologna on a loan deal with an option to buy.

Last month, the left-back revealed Enzo Maresca’s decision to convert him into a centre-back at the start of the season didn’t please him and it convinced him to join the Serie A side. He had also hoped Bologna could find a solution to retain him beyond this season.

That remains unlikely for the Leicester owned player if a report from today’s Gazzetta dello Sport is to be believed.

It’s claimed the option to make the Denmark international’s stay permanent is set at €14m.

The Denmark international has made 12 appearances this season and it includes seven league starts. Focusing on his performances, the report says he is ‘not fully convincing’ so far, for Bologna to invest €14m to purchase him next summer.

In other words, the Championship side could miss out on collecting a nice fee for a player who has already stated that he has ‘no future’ at the King Power Stadium.

At the start of this year, the Foxes took Kristiansen from FC Copenhagen and handed him a contract until 2028.

If he returns to Leicester, the two parties would have to find a new solution next summer.
