Roma Lay Eyes on Experienced Atletico Madrid Defender

Roma are on the prowl for another defender after onboarding Dean Huijsen and are interested in Caglar Soyuncu. He has been on their radar in the past. Atletico Madrid won the race to sign him on a Bosman move last summer.

Per Sky, the Giallorossi don’t have much to spend and would like to add the veteran on loan. However, they’ll have to wait for the final days of the window because he’s receiving offers from other sides. For instance, Fulham are ready to table €20M.

Soyuncu could indeed be on his way out since he hasn’t played much so far, but he’ll have to turn down other destinations for Roma to become an option. He has logged 9 appearances for a total of 213 minutes. He previously starred for Leicester City and Freiburg.

The Giallorossi wish to open up room for another salary by partying ways with Renato Sanches. His camp is looking for a team that could take over the loan spell from PSG. Besiktas, which are coached by Fernando Santos, the former Portugal gaffer, and Olympiacos are in the running, Corriere dello Sport informs.

Our Take on Roma and Soyuncu

They definitely need another man, preferably a veteran in this case. It’d be better if it were somebody who already played in Serie A, but they have to settle with what’s available. It looks like another instance where José Mourinho will have to pull his weight around to help them in the transfer market.
