After a breakout season with Belgium's Sint-Truiden, defender Takehiro Tomiyasu appears set for a blockbuster move to Bologna in the Italian first division.

According to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Tomiyasu's transfer was indirectly revealed on Tuesday by Walter Sabatini, a longtime technical director for several top Italian clubs who recently took up the role at Bologna.

The reported €6 million ($6.7 million) deal would be the biggest sale in the history of Sint-Truiden, the DMM-owned club that signed the Fukuoka native in the winter of 2018.
