Cade Cowell subject of Serie A offer
Cowell, 19, has already made eight senior appearances for the USMNT and scored his first goal for his country in the 6-0 demolition of Trinidad and Tobago last month in Charlotte, NC.
The dynamic winger has totaled 11 goals and provided 12 assists in his Quakes career so far and has already amassed more than 100 appearances for his club despite his young age. Cowell is thought to be extremely keen on a move but would be waving goodbye to a side where he has become a regular- appearing in all 13 matches this season that he has been available for.
Bologna finished a respectable ninth in Serie A last season and are expected to go well again this season under the stewardship of Thiago Motta- despite potentially losing former West Ham forward Marko Arnautovic to Inter Milan before the European transfer window slams shut on September 1.
