Milanese Clubs and Roma Hard at Work to Offload Misfits

On top of searching for reinforcements, the Serie A heavyweights are trying to rid themselves of excess players in the final days of the transfer market window. Milan, Inter, and especially Roma are looking to trim the squad to make room for additions.

According to Sky (via SportMediaset), Adama Demirspor are eyeing Tiemoué Bakayoko, who’s on loan to the Rossoneri from Chelsea. The Turkish side tendered a three-year contract with €3M wages. The midfielder, who has never played this season, is weighing the destination. He has refused every proposal so far.

Inter could let a fringe midfielder depart as well. Per Gianluca Di Marzio, Nottingham Forest are interested in Roberto Gagliardini, who recently voiced his malcontent for his lack of playing time. It remains to be seen whether they’ll try to add him right away or when he’ll be out of contract in June.

Roma continue to operate to offload outcasts to facilitate their plans. Bayer Leverkusen have joined the race for Eldor Shomurodov, although without tabling a formal bid yet, the transfer market expert reports. While Cremonese, Spezia, Verona, and Lille are keen, the Uzbek continues to wait for Torino, TuttoSport relays. The French side has lodged the largest offer so far.

Instead, Matias Vina is on Betis Sevilla, Mallorca, and Bournemouth’s radars, Calciomercato informs. The Giallorossi have been trying to part ways with Rick Karsdorp after José Mourinho banished him, but there is no news on such front, Corriere dello Sport informs. Monza and Feyenoord have reservations about the transfer formula and his €2M wages.
