Marin Pongračić, the Croatian defender, is set to leave Lecce, with Bologna showing strong interest. A potential €20 million transfer could make him Lecce's highest sale ever.

Croatian international defender Marin Pongračić (26) is on the verge of leaving Lecce. Pongračić had an impressive season with the Italian Serie A club, crowned with two starts at the European Championship.

For weeks, there have been rumors of interest from other clubs, and according to Italian sources, Bologna is the most serious contender. Bologna will be playing in the Champions League next season and sees Pongračić as a replacement for Riccardo Calafiori, who is close to transferring to Arsenal.

Lecce has set a price for the Croatian defender. According to Quotidiano Di Puglia, a local Lecce media outlet, the club wants €20 million for Pongračić.

If the transfer goes through, Pongračić would become the biggest sale in Lecce's history. Currently, the record is held by Morten Hjulmand, who moved to Sporting last year for €19.5 million.

However, Italian reports suggest that Lecce might have to settle for a slightly lower amount. Pongračić has two years left on his current contract but is keen to return to playing for stronger clubs, having previously played for Borussia Dortmund and in Bayern Munich's youth teams.

He joined Lecce on loan from Wolfsburg in 2022, and the Italian club purchased him a year later for €1.6 million.
