Italy international midfielder Alessandro Diamanti has agreed terms to move to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande, his Serie A club Bologna confirmed Friday. Talks between both clubs have been ongoing for some time, with Guangzhou coach Marcello Lippi playing a leading role in luring Diamanti to the Chinese Super League side.
Guangzhou released a statement about the transfer in the early hours of Friday morning and Bologna later confirmed the move on their official website.
Diamanti, who has spent two and a half years with the 'Rossoblu', is believed to have signed a three-year agreement with Guangzhou worth up to €8m to the Italian club. The 30-year-old attacking midfielder has been capped 17 times by Italy.
