Bologna goalkeeper Antonio Mirante has told the Italian media he’s aware the likes of AS Roma are interested in him. The 33-year-old may leave the Serie A club this summer, with claims Leeds United’s Marco Silvestri could be brought in to replace the veteran.
Speaking to TMW, Mirante was asked about his future, and whether he’ll be staying at Bologna following interest from Roma. The Italian said he’ll assess the situation in the coming days to see what materialises, but he highlighted he still has two years left on his contract with Bologna.
“I’m seen the transfer market rumours. We’ll see in the next few days, but what is also true is I have two more years left of my contract with Bologna,” said Mirante.
In recent days Silvestri it’s been reported the goalkeeper could be targeted by Bologna this summer if Mirante leaves. The 26-year-old has just 12 months left on his contract with Leeds United, and there is no guarantee he will extend this.
Mirante choosing not to rule out an exit will further fuel the rumours, and the claims that Bologna may need Silvestri to replace him.
Last season he struggled to get games due to Leeds United bringing in Rob Green, and with the former England international extending his stay at Elland Road the situation doesn’t look good for Silvestri.
