Roma Likely Forced to Delay Pursuit of Sassuolo Star

Roma were hot on the trail of Davide Frattesi before the January window formally window started. However, everything has been quiet in recent days. The Giallorossi need to rake in money to foot a pricey addition. Moreover, the two sides diverge significantly on the price tags of the players potentially involved in the deal.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the situation has completely stalled, with 20 days to go before the end of the transfer session. The odds of the midfielder transferring in the winter are getting slimmer.

Roma remain in pole position to sign Frattesi considering his desire to return to his boyhood club, but they’ll most likely have to wait until the summer. The Giallorossi offered Edoardo Bove and Cristian Volpato as part of the package, but the Emilian side didn’t value the two youngsters as highly as they did.

Moreover, the Neroverdi are in a slump. They’d be in worse shape in the standings if the bottom three teams were a little more competitive. In addition, they have rarely parted ways with linchpins in January.

Our Take on Roma, Sassuolo, and Frattesi

The early momentum was the weird development, not these reports, which are normal considering Neroverdi’s habits, expensive price tags, and long negotiations, and the Giallorossi’s FFP restrictions. Perhaps things could still change if they managed to sell all their outcasts for good sums, but that’s doubtful. While he’d be a fantastic signing, they have some youngsters to groom in the midfield, so their biggest need, numerically and technically speaking, is in the back.
