Ahead of a reported €4 million move, Sparta Prague and Czech Republic winger Ladislav Krejci has landed in Bologna and is expected to undergo his medical tomorrow with the move also expected to be announced on the same day, Sky Italia report.

The 24-year-old was part of the Czech side who failed to escape the group stages at Euro 2016 and featured in all three of his nations games with Spain, Croatia and Turkey.

Last term Krejci appeared 42 times in all competitions and netted eight times and assisted on nine occasions as Sparta missed out on silverware for the second successive season.

Krejci has just a year remaining on his current deal so the Rudi are doing very well to earn such a fee for the player who came through their youth system before debuting in 2010 aged 18.
