Roma have paused their pursuit of Davide Frattesi and other potential additions to focus on the exits, which will be vital to determining their January budget. Rick Karsdorp and Eldor Shomurodov are on their way out. The Giallorossi prefer outright sales, but they might have to compromise to offload them.
Per Sky, Monza have inquired about the out-of-favor fullback. They proposed a loan with conditioned obligation to buy in case they avoid relegation. However, his wages are problematic for them. The Dutchman has suitors in England. While Fulham cooled off, Southampton and Bournemouth touched base recently. But things are preliminary on that front.
Torino are in advanced talks with Shomurodov on personal terms, but they have yet to come to terms with Roma. He turned down other destinations and wants to join the Granata. The Giallorossi could eventually agree to a temporary spell by getting a small fee right away.
Gonzalo Villar will leave Sampdoria and return to Getafe, where he played in the second half of last season. The formula should be the same Monza tendered for Karsdorp. Betis asked for Matias Vina on loan, but the capital side wants to cash in. Valencia could redeem Justin Kluivert early, but they need to agree on his salary.
Our Take on the Roma Transfer Market
There was much ado about Frattesi early, but this is the most logical way to go considering they can’t spend until they sell due to the Financial Fair Play. Moreover, as the publication suggests, signing a new center-back is a bigger need than bringing in a box-to-box.
