Sporting Kansas City midfielder Gianluca Busio is attracting interest from foreign clubs as several Italian Serie A teams have made offers, sources told ESPN’s Taylor Twellman.
Busio, 19, holds Italian citizenship through his father, which would qualify him as a national player in Italy and which has attracted increased interest from Serie A sides.

MLSSoccer.com reported in April that two Serie A clubs made offers last winter and both were rejected. Sources also told ESPN that prior to the 2020 season, Kansas City rejected a $ 4 million offer from Fiorentina.
A young American international at the under-15, under-17 and under-20 levels, Busio signed a local contract with SKC in August 2017.
He’s been a part of Kansas City’s roster since the start of the 2019 campaign. He’s also shown versatility, playing as a deep midfielder, attacking midfielder and striker.
In total, he has made 63 league and cup appearances, scoring eight goals, including two this season.
