Roma are looking for reinforcements in the midfield after missing out on Davide Frattesi and have laid eyes on Scott McTominay. He appeared 39 times last season, scoring 3 goals. He joins a list of targets that currently comprises Renato Sanches and Marcel Sabitzer, who could transfer on initial loans, Sky relays.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Scottish international is potentially considered expendable by coach Erik Ten Hag. However, the Red Devils want €30M to part ways with him. In addition, his wages are robust since he makes €4.6M per year.
Moreover, Roma face competition from Brighton for McTominay. The Seagulls sold Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool and might lose Moises Caicedo too as Chelsea are targeting him.
The Giallorossi will still benefit from Inter acquiring Davide Frattesi. They’ll receive €9.6M once the Nerazzurri redeem him in 2024, plus €1.5M more if all add-ons are activated.
Our Take on Roma and McTominay
While he’d address a need, he’s an improbable target given his costs. His teammate Fred would be a better purchase. The usual elephant in the room for the Giallorossi is how much they can actually spend, even if they brought in a good amount of cash by selling youngsters.
