Roma Eyeing Benfica, Fenerbahce, and Stuttgart Forwards

Roma will have revolving doors up front this summer and are pondering some cost-effective purchases such as Rafa Silva, Jamie Leweling, and Michy Batshuayi. The Giallorossi are unlikely to keep Romelu Lukaku and have a few uncertain situations behind him as well.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Calciomercato), the Fenerbahce and Benfica veterans could leave their respective teams on a free. The Portuguese is seriously considering trying a new experience. He has posted 20 goals and 14 assists in 50 matches in 2023/2024. He can feature in multiple roles.

While Roma might scoop up Batshuayi and Rafa Silva gratis, they’d have to pay a fee for Leweling. The 30-year-old has hit his stride in Turkey after a few lackadaisical and injury-ravaged seasons in the Premier League. He has bagged 37 goals in 76 Super Lig fixtures.

According to Bild (via Sussidiario), the Giallorossi have shown interest in the Union Berlin winger, who has played on loan at Stuttgart this season. They have €6M option to buy but might not pick it up. He has logged four goals and seven assists.

Our Take on Roma, Rafa Silva, Batshuayi, and Leweling

They’ll need a lot of additions as, on top of Lukaku, Sardar Azmoun joined temporarily, and they’ll have to bring in some wingers due to their schematic change. There’s a chance Andrea Belotti stays as a deputy. It’ll be interesting to see whether they’ll patch things together through Bosman moves and loans or look to build something more stable under a new director.
