Roma Probe Underutilized Manchester City Fullback

Roma seem to have made up their mind about moving on from Leonardo Spinazzola, whose contract is about to expire, and kicked the tires on Sergio Gomez. He hasn’t featured much during his time with Manchester City.

Per Matteo Moretto (via SOSFanta), Real Sociedad and more Spanish clubs are after him too. The 23-year-old was signed for €15M from Anderlecht two years ago. He has struggled to break through in England. He logged 23 appearances in his maiden campaign and 15 in his second one, mostly making short cameos off the bench.

Roma retained Angelino from Galatasaray following a loan spell and are eyeing Sergio Gomez to complete the pairing at the position. He can star in the midfield other than as a left-back. He blossomed with Belgium before moving to the Premier League, tallying 7 goals and 15 assists in 49 matches in 2021/2022.

The Spaniard is a product of the Barcelona academy but transferred to Borussia Dortmund when he was only 18. He spent a season at Huesca before Anderlecht acquired him. He has 19 caps and 10 goals with Spain U-21 under his belt.

According to the journalist, the capital club is indeed keen on Atletico Madrid’s Rodrigo Riquelme.Rodrigo Riquelme. However, he might be too expensive for them for now.

Our Take on Roma and Sergio Gomez

The Giallorossi like a reclamation project.  There’d be a lot to work with there even if he didn’t earn a regular role at Manchester City. His versatility would come in handy in Daniele De Rossi’s fluid schemes. His wages are fine, but it remains to be seen how much his side would want for him.
