Roma wish to add an attacker to round out the squad and, on top of pursuing Tommaso Baldanzi, they have been offered Federico Bernardeschi. The attacker is eager to return to Serie A and has been routinely linked to Juventus.
According to Corriere dello Sport, the Giallorossi have run into some difficulties for the Empoli starlet. The Tuscan side would only sell him outright and for a worthy bid. They’ll be more than happy to keep him till the end of the season. The capital club doesn’t have much to spend. They need to come up with the right formula to be successful.
Instead, Bernardeschi would be a much easier option, as Roma would just need to come to terms with Toronto FC on how to split his rich wages. He’d have to agree to lower them a little to facilitate the move. The brass isn’t particularly enthused, but they might struggle to find an alternative.
The Giallorossi are trying to part ways with some of their players to have more ammo. Galatasaray are still keen on Zeki Celik. Cagliari, Verona, Genoa, and Torino are after Marash Kumbulla. Andrea Belotti is close to Fiorentina, but Daniele De Rossi would like to keep him.
Our Take on Roma and Bernardeschi
He wouldn’t be the most exciting acquisition, but they are full of Azzurri, and he’d plug a hole at a reasonable price.
