Roma Expand Their Search to Chelsea and Betis Strikers

Roma are having trouble in the negotiations for Marcos Leonardo and Duvan Zapata and have begun considering different options to shore up their attack, Chelsea’s Armando Broja and Betis Sevilla’s Willian José, Sky informs.

Milan are after the Albanian marksman as well. However, the Blues don’t want to let the striker go out on loan. He scored once in 18 appearances last season before suffering an ACL tear. He previously showed promise during his stints at Southampton and Vitesse.

Roma have also taken an interest in Willian José, who’s way more experienced than Broja. He has 235 La Liga matches and 73 goals to his name. He has also starred for Real Sociedad, Real Zaragoza, Las Palmas, and Real Madrid in Spain and had a cup of coffee with Wolverhampton.

The Giallorossi haven’t given up for Marcos Leonardo, but Santos are playing hardball and want to monetize his departure as much as possible. The capital side encounters similar problems in the Zapata deal as La Dea continues changing its conditions.

Our Take on Roma, Broja, and Willian José

The fact that they are pivoting doesn’t bode well regarding their previous targets. The proposition of adding one veteran and one youngster is sound, but they have to find a pair that meshes well and can produce pronto. It’d be better if one of the two were familiar with Serie A.
