Bologna have decided not to activate the buy option on Victor Kristiansen but could return to Leicester City with a cheaper offer, reports suggest.

The 21-year-old Danish left back decided to leave the Foxes last summer following the arrival of Enzo Maresca, unconvinced about the Italian coach’s suggestion that he adapt to a left-sided centre back in a three-man backline, preferring to develop as a full back.

Kristiansen joined Bologna on a loan deal with a €15m buy option attached and showed a number of positives under Thiago Motta, providing four assists across 32 Serie A appearances. He played a key role in their historic charge to the Champions League, seeing over 2300 minutes of league action.

Kristiansen situation

TMW highlights how Bologna do not intend to activate Kristiansen’s €15m buy option, meaning that he’ll return to Leicester in the coming weeks. Despite that, a return to Italy could still be on the horizon after the European Championship.

The Rossoblu could return to the Foxes with a lower offer for the 21-year-old, whose contract with the newly promoted side expires in June 2028.
