Recent Tottenham and Chelsea target Godfred Donsah set for Bologna medical

Bologna fans celebrating

Godfred Donsah had recently been linked to Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, but he will sign with Bologna instead.

Godfred Donsah is set to sign for Italian side Bologna, his agent has confirmed to Tuttomercatoweb.

He was a bright spark in the Cagliari squad which was relegated to Serie B last season, with his breakthrough performances attracting interest.

Premier League sides were among those credited, with The Metro reporting earlier this month that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho had sent a delegation to Italy to discuss a deal to sign the central midfielder.

Italian website Calciomercato claimed just last week that Tottenham Hotspur were showing an interest in the 19-year-old. 

Donsah's agent Arthur Oliver has confirmed the move to Bologna, and indicated that staying in Italy was the plan all along.

He said: "He is happy, he chose Bologna for having the chance to play and to be in Serie A was his goal. 

"He is 'young and should receive priority to time to play and increase his experience."

Donsah is reported by Tuttomercatoweb to be undergoing a medical, with the confirmation of the move imminent.

Bologna were recently promoted back to Serie A, losing their first game of the new season 2-1 to Lazio at the weekend.

There is every chance he could earn a move to the Premier League in the future, but with regard to missing out on a move to Chelsea in particular, getting playing time at Bologna is a better move for him at this point in his career.
