Como Readying Contract Offer for Elite European Defender

Serie A newcomers Como are working tirelessly on assembling a squad capable of handling top-flight challenges ahead of their debut campaign. According to reports from French outlet Foot Mercato, the Italian minnows plot an audacious swoop for one of the best defenders of the 21st century, Mats Hummels.
Recently linked with Milan and Roma, Hummels canceled his allegiance to Borussia Dortmund and is free to choose his next destination. Despite being in the autumn of his career, the 35-year-old would be a massive coup for any team, with Como hoping they could convince him to inhabit a ‘lake house.’
In addition to being one of the loveliest places to visit, Como bid to become a household name in Italian football. With Cesc Fabregas serving as assistant coach to Osian Roberts and Thiery Henry being a minority shareholder, the club’s future looks bright. But they need to build a reputation on the field.
They’re already busy reinforcing their squad. Yesterday’s report in Italy detailed how Rom and Como agreed on a deal for Andrea Belotti to continue his career at Stadio Giuseppe Sinigaglia. Despite his steady decline at the Stadio Olimpico, he’s still among the fiercest strikers in Serie A and could be a valuable addition to Como.
But Como won’t stop there. They believe a €3m per season contract offer could get them Hummels, who featured in the Champions League final only last month. He’s a classy defender with a wealth of experience, something they could use in their first season in Serie A.
