Roma Involved in Busy Frays for Two Future Free Agents

Roma have had success with Bosman acquisitions in the summer, and they are eyeing Evan Ndicka and Houssem Aouar for 2023. They had already targeted the Eintracht Frankfurt defender and the Olympique Lyonnais playmaker in the most recent window.

According to Footmercato (via FootballNews24), the Giallorossi are keeping tabs on the Frenchman, who’s out of contract in June. Betis, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, and Juventus are monitoring the situation as well. If his team agreed to sell him for a low fee, they could make an attempt in January. On the other hand, the midfielder is asking for €4.5M per year, which is at the edge of what they pay to their top players.

As it is the case for Aouar, Roma have to compete with multiple teams for Ndicka too, Tuttomercatoweb reports. The Bianconeri and Sevilla have been after him for a while. The Gunners could be in the mix, but that will change if Gabriel signs an extension.

The 23-year-old was in their crosshairs in the past few months as well, but Die Adler refused to negotiate his departure. The capital side ultimately didn’t add a center-back, and they have been rotating just four so far. The budget for the winter is small, while an addition on a free is more possible.

Our Take on Roma Tracking Aouar and Ndicka

The Giallorossi will welcome back Georginio Wijnaldum during the break, and they will evaluate his recovery before considering other moves. Mady Camara has proven to be a real option in recent matches. They have been rolling the dice in the back given their lack of depth. The Frenchman will most likely see the campaign out, and he will be a bargain for whoever snares him.
