Bologna have emerged as the shock favourites to win the race to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer once his contract with LA Galaxy ends in December.
Ibrahimovic, 38, has been linked with a host of top European clubs including AC Milan, Napoli and Manchester United.
However, Ibrahimovic is said to be favouring a move to Bologna ahead of a return to either Milan or United.

Napoli were said to be high up on his wish-list but Corriere dello Sport believe 15th-placed Bologna could land the Swede.
Ibrahimovic is expected to leave MLS after spending two seasons with the LA Galaxy.
He is now targeting a return to Europe after netting a staggering 53 goals in 58 games for the Los Angeles-based side.

And Ibrahimovic’s friendship with Bologna boss Sinisa Mihajlovic could be decisive when he finalises his next move.
He said last month: ‘I know I could still make the difference, both in Italy and in other countries.
‘I’d do better than the players who are there playing now.’
