Seems to have a good eye for goal. Nice run and not as easy a finish as it looks on his weaker foot. He has a goal every 50 minutes this season. Had 7 goals last season in Serie B too.

Is it expensive? I think is around 12-15mln.
Yes that is the figure. Considering our <0$ transfer budget it is still too much.

Should we sacrifice a starter we would never spend it on our own kid. We rated him far below that since the beginning.

It's in his hands. We've demonstrated this summer a willingness to spend money, so if he's good enough to justify a 15mil tag we will definitely buy him (or, rather, if he's worth like 30 and we have a clause for 15)

Thats the point. We tend to underrate own players and the only way he is back here is a 30m evaluation. Whose probability is next to zero.

To justify that price tag Fabbian must be a core players weeks in weeks out (aka Frattesi). 1.5 years is short enoughfor Bologna to develop him less rigorous and let that clause run out.

Well, in the area we are already stacked we would always prefer a Klaasen to save cost.

We have an option to buy him back I believe, so the point is more if other clubs are starting to chase him we can undercut them.

At 30m when he's 22 or so he's got to have shown decent potential but not even as much as say Frattesi or Barella when they moved to Inter, so it's quite achievable, especially with the accolades he's getting at the moment. With Mkhi leaving in a year or two, and only Frattesi and Asllani really as backups, there's plenty of space for him soon.

Scored his 3rd of the season... I am pretty sure that if he continues to play well for the next season and a half he will be brought back.

He's getting these starts also here and there. Is it purely because Bologna bought him so they have an incentive to use him and develop him? Because we have Carboni at Monza on a dry loan and he's getting starts too. Juve has Soule at Frosinone on a dry loan, he's almost like putting the league on fire. Talent level analyzed differently with these other two so the smaller clubs willing to take and use these young players even on dry loan?

I'm thinking did we really had to sell Fabbian last summer for so cheap price? Was the boy who forced a sale instead of dry loan?

Every story of a player is different and it would be interesting to know the background of this Fabbian thing when we compare some of these other players, like the mentioned names.

If the buyback is valid for 2 years it makes sense to wait and let him play another season there. Either he continues to improve and can easily justify his redemption price, or he cools off and we make some money. Of course there’s always the cash flow issue…

Give it a couple of seasons - Hakan will be out probably, Mkhi will be gone, we'll be down to Barella Fratessi Asllani and Zielinski in his last year or two?

Will need to pay a lot more then to get him back.

He is much more similar to Frattesi than Mkhitaryan.
This. Fabbian isn't like Mkhitaryan at all, but he's very close to Frattesi.

As we are signing Zielinski, maybe one scenario is to sell Frattesi to EPL for big bucks if an opportunity appears and replace him with Fabbian.

Frattesi talked how he didn't want to move abroad yet, but the comment left a question in the air that he might be interested doing such move later in his career?

Also Fabbian is cost controlled in terms of the buyback option. I've understood we have an option to buy back this and next summer. There was a story this summer it would he 12m and in 2025 summer it would be 15m. But let's see. Let's hope we sign this guy back irregardless of our current players since he seems very promising.
