Roma Concretely Going After Another Prized Free Agent

After accelerating their pursuit of Houssem Aouar, Roma are closing in on Evan N’Dicka, who’s in the same contractual situation. The Giallorossi are dueling primarily with Barcelona to capture the Eintracht Frankfurt star, who will depart on a free transfer.

According to Corriere dello Sport, director Tiago Pinto met his agent and his Italian intermediary at least a couple of times. They lodged a credible proposal and are waiting for an answer from his entourage. Multiple Premier League clubs are eyeing the Frenchman as well.

Roma offered N’Dicka to triple his wages, going from €700k to €2M per year. In their plans, he would replace Roger Ibanez, who could be sold to help out with the Financial Fair Play. His valuation is around €25M price tag, and he has interest from England.

According to the publication, the Giallorossi have been tendered Roberto Firmino by his camp. They are mulling his requests and haven’t decided whether to pursue him or not. The Brazilian forward has decided to depart Liverpool on a Bosman move.

Our Take on Roma, N’Dicka, and Firmino

The capital side isn’t sitting on its hands, unlike other clubs whose transfer market moves and budget will depend on their final position. The defender would be a great acquisition, and they wouldn’t miss Ibanez much if such a scenario came to fruition.

Firmino likely demands massive wages, but they should seriously look into him since they have generally done well when using a mobile striker. Tammy Abraham is another player that could be sacrificed to have more money to spend. Despite his struggles, he’d have to be replaced with a top-notch option.
