Three Serie A teams target promising USMNT midfielder

Upon earning promotion with Venezia to Serie A, Tanner Tessmann is a name popping up throughout transfer rumors. The 22-year-old played in 37 out of a possible 38 games in Serie B last season. From his defensive midfielder spot, Tessmann started 35 Serie B games, playing the full 90 minutes each time. Despite finishing third, Tessmann played each minute as Venezia won the promotion playoffs. That included a goal in the second leg of the semifinal triumph over Palermo.

Unsurprisingly, Venezia is one of the teams interested in Tessmann. The American is under contract in Venice for one more season. That makes him an interesting prospect for Venezia if it were to sell. If it cannot sign Tessmann to a contract extension, Venezia could sell the midfielder for a profit. He originally joined the newly promoted Serie A side in 2021 for $4 million.

The three sides courting Tessmann are familiar to him regarding opponents. Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that Parma, last season’s Serie B champion, wants Tessmann. However, the other team in the market for Tessmann has higher expectations that come with perhaps more challenges to this consistent playing time. Bologna, which finished a sensational fifth in Serie A last season, clinched Champions League soccer for the 2024/25 campaign.

That provides an opportunity for Tessmann to prove himself among quality teammates and more challenging opposition. However, Bologna relied on Michel Aebischer and Remo Freuler, both of whom ranked in the top four in appearances for Bologna last season. Tessmann would have to step into one of their positions in the defensive midfield. The prospect of a new coach at Bologna with Thiago Motta departing does make that slightly more achievable.
