Roma and Inter Could Adress Their Pressing Needs with a Straight Swap

Roma want to add an offensive piece in the final month of the transfer market. Instead, Inter are still searching for a replacement for Achraf Hakimi. The two sides could solve each other’s issues by trading Alessandro Florenzi for Ivan Perisic, La Repubblica reports. They have matching wages.

The Italian international will soon re-join the team following the Euro and the loan spell at PSG. He has not been frozen out like other players, but his future is uncertain. He has a cumbersome salary, and the club would not mind shedding it from the payroll. However, he has drawn little interest thus far. Should that continue to be the case, Roma could keep him on the roster next to Rick Karsdorp, Gianluca Di Marzio informed.

Inter wanted the right-back last year as well before he moved to France. They have not ruled out adding another option for the flank on top of Nahitan Nandez. Ivan Perisic has just a year left on his contract, and he is unlikely to extend it. He also lacks suitors, therefore the swap with Florenzi would be an opportunity for the Beneamata. Otherwise, they would probably lose him for nothing next year. Although, they would have to find a new option afterward, despite their intention to rely on Federico Dimarco.

Mourinho instructed the front office to bring in a pacey winger to fill out the frontline. Roma has been linked to Filip Kostic and Luis Diaz, who are expensive targets. Ezequiel Barco is also on their radar, as he wants to leave Atlanta to move to Europe, informs.
