Torino President Cairo has refused Roma’s offer for Mihajlovic’s young midfielder. Roma are now targeting Bologna midfielder Godfred Donsah.
Yesterday that a move is imminent for Roma’s under-used, Brazilian midfielder Gerson to Lille on loan and the announcement should be move by tomorrow morning.
Despite already securing the services of Lyon midfielder Grenier, Roma are looking for a replacement for Gerson. Baselli was lined up by the Roma management for a loan with €9 million plus bonus option to buy. The offer was rejected by Torino President Cairo despite Baselli not starting every game, has made 22 appearances for Torino in Serie A and is important to Mihajlovic’s plans. Barring any huge return bids, should remain in Turin for the rest of the season.
Donsah- Now Roma will try to change direction towards Donsah. The agent of the Ghanian is reportedly in Milan where he could meet Roma Sporting Director Massara to see if there are any room to negotiate. There isn’t a great sense of optimism from the Roma camp. Bologna are asking for around €12-13 million for him.
However, as we have seen previously the will of the player could push the deal along. Donsah is willing to push for a move. But time is running out.
