Roma Looking to Close the Gap in the Scrum for Frattesi

Inter and Milan haven’t pulled away in the race for Davide Frattesi, and Roma remain in contention. The Nerazzurri are focusing on Romelu Lukaku. They will take care of this matter after the negotiation with Chelsea. The Rossoneri are in talks for a few other midfielders.

Per Corriere dello Sport, the discussions between the Giallorossi and Sassuolo will be challenging, but the outcome could be positive with some patience. The Emilian side is happy to sell him to the highest bidders. The player wishes to stay in Italy despite some interest from the Premier League.

Roma tendered €30M for Frattesi in the past considering a 30 percent discount deriving from his previous sale. They’d get €12M if he moved to another team for €40M. The Giallorossi need to be creative with the formula given their financial restrictions. They could tender a 10M loan with an €11M obligation to buy and €3.5M bonuses. It would meet the asking price, although not directly.

The Neroverdi already signed Filippo Missori and Cristian Volpato from the capital club, but they are open to onboarding more youth products. Their director Giovanni Carnevali recently dished on the topic.

“We’ll weigh them regardless. Roma were the first to ask for Frattesi, but we didn’t reach agreement last summer. We are a little closer this time around.”

On the other hand, Milan will have a first meeting with Sassuolo Wednesday, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.
