Another day, another bid for Defrel.
Roma are set to continue their press on Sassuolo’s Grégoire Defrel who has 6 goals and 2 assist in his 20 Serie A games, by possibly inserting one of their academy players Marco Tumminello or Riccardo Marchizza.
There’s 8 days left of the January window for the club to provide a gift to head coach Luciano Spalletti. AS Roma are continuing to pursue the French forward despite Spalletti’s claims that he is happy with the squad as it is. The Frenchman’s agent is keen to sit down with AS Roma to discussing his client’s requirements while the club, based in Emilia-Romagna are yet to accept any bid.
Roma value Defrel’s signature at €15 or €16 million to help their schudetto push are looking to include one of their young players (Tumminello or Marchizza) in the deal for loan with right to buy set for 2018.
Sassuolo are yet to agree but the first signals are encouraging for Roma fans.
