Aberdeen are bracing themselves for the first wave of summer interest in Bojan Miovski, with keen suitors likely to come from Serie A.

Bologna have been long-term admirers of Miovski, but the Dons have been alerted to the fact that there are also several other top flight Italian sides who have him on their wanted lists.

I Rossoblu have the cash on standby, as they are set to sell Dutch striker Joshua Zirkzee to Manchester United for over £30million, and defender Riccardo Calafiori is also a £40million target for Arsenal.

Aberdeen haven't had bids yet but are aware that interest is growing in their 26-goal striker and several Italian clubs are likely to start the bidding, writes the Daily Record.

The Dons are in a good position because Miovski still has two years left on his contract having joined the Reds under former manager Jim Goodwin in 2022.

They won't put an asking price on the North Macedonia international's head and if a club wants to land him then they will need to get into the same ballpark as when Aberdeen sold Calvin Ramsay to Liverpool for more than £6.5million.

Aberdeen have always been clear that if the right offer comes in and it fits their selling model and suits the player then they will make things happen.

When Miovski does go Aberdeen will make a major profit on the £500,000 they paid Hungarian side MTK two summers ago.

Bologna has already had success with Aberdeen in the past signing Scottish international Lewis Ferguson, who is currently battling back from a serious ACL injury that saw him miss Euro 2024.

They also signed Aaron Hickey from Hearts before they sold them to Premier League side Brentford in a big-money deal.

The likes of Hellas Verona and Udinese are other clubs who are no stranger to looking to Scotland for talent, with both keen on Josh Doig before he signed for the former and has now moved on to Sassuolo.

Aberdeen also sold Ylber Ramadani to Lecce last season and he has been another major success story in Serie A before impressing this summer with Albania at the Euros.
