Roma Get Bid for Outcast, Youngster Wanted in England

Roma might part ways with two players, as Como are pursuing Andre Belotti, while Edoardo Bove received a couple of offers from the Premier League. The striker is back in the Italian capital following a subpar six-month loan spell at Fiorentina. La Viola didn’t have an option to buy him.

Per Fabrizio Romano (via SOSFanta), the two sides have struck an agreement in principle on a €4.5M fee. The Lariani are waiting for the go-ahead from the players. He prefers waiting for bigger clubs that play in the cups for now.

Belotti won’t stay at Roma even if the deal with Como collapses, while the team needs to decide what to do with Bove. Bournemouth and Everton have shown significant interest, Sky informs (via Tuttomercatoweb). Leeds United would have been in the mix if they got promoted. His valuation is €18/20M.

The youngster likes the idea of transferring to England. Both suitors have ties with the Giallorossi. The Cherries hired their former director Tiago Pinto. Instead, the Friedkin family is in advanced talks to take over the Toffees.

Our Take on Roma, Belotti, and Bove

The forward didn’t get to work with Daniele De Rossi for long, and they could do a lot worse for a deputy, but it appears the parties are happy to go their separate ways. He might have to settle for a minnow after failing to bounce back at Fiorentina, and Como are ambitious and wealthy. The midfielder is a valuable cog even though he’s not a full-time starter, but the ‘plusvalenza’ would be mouth-watering if the offers reach certain levels.
