In search of another player to strengthen their backcourt after the physical issues that Nico Mannion is going through, Virtus Bologna is reportedly targeting American Yogi Ferrell, according to Italian newspaper 'La Repubblica.'

Position: SG
Age: 28
Height: 183 cm
Weight: 81 kg
Birth place: United States of America

Ferrell has been waived by the Los Angeles Clippers, where he spent the last part of the previous season. According to 'La Repubblica', as of right now, Ferrell is the main target for Virtus Bologna. The team has also been linked to other high-profile players, such as Frank Ntilikina.

Mannion might miss up to two months of action after a severe intestinal infection that debilitated him a lot. Coach Sergio Scariolo confirmed that the team is looking to add another player in the backcourt, someone who can contribute right away but who can also be a part of the team for the future. 

In 8 regular-season games with the Clippers, Ferrell averaged 4.6 points, 2.3 assists, and 2.1 rebounds per game. If he ended up with Virtus Bologna, this would be his first European experience.
