Roma Mull Double Swoop, Resume Tracking Bologna Star

Roma have moved decisively to add Marcos Leonardo to their frontline, but they want a veteran too and have reignited their interest in Marko Arnautovic. The price tag of the Brazilian prodigy is around €15M, SportMediaset informs.

José Mourinho is unlikely to get Alvaro Morata as he wishes, but the Austrian veteran is fairly similar and would be easier to purchase. The Special One already coached him at Inter when he was 20. He played just 55 minutes during the treble season.

Roma will proceed to haggle with Santos and Bologna to try onboarding Marcos Leonardo and Arnautovic. The latter appears to have settled his differences with Thiago Motta. The Felsinei will drive a decently hard bargain.

The Giallorossi are considering bringing in multiple strikers also because Andrea Belotti isn’t certain to stay put. He joined on a free, so the club would turn a profit if they accepted any decent offer.

Our Take on Roma, Marcos Leonardo, and Arnautovic

It’d be a pretty good duo as it’d satisfy the desires of the brass, which clearly prefers investing in youngsters, also Mourinho’s ones, who, like most coaches, prioritizes players ready to contribute right away. However, as always, it will come down to their price tags, as they can’t spend that much.
