Budapest (AFP) – After impressing at Euro 2016, Hungary midfielder Adam Nagy has signed for Serie A side Bologna, his club, current Hungarian champions Ferencvaros, confirmed on Thursday.

“Adam Nagy will continue his career in the Italian top flight with Bologna, who have signed him for 1.5 million euros ($1.7M),” said a statement on the Budapest-based club’s website. 

The 21-year-old Nagy, widely regarded as the brightest talent Hungary has produced in years, gained attention during the Magyars’ run to the last-16 round at Euro 2016 last month.

Clubs including Portuguese champions Benfica and Olympique de Marseille in France had also expressed interest in the youngster who finally agreed terms with the Italian side who finished 14th in Italy last season.
