Roma Probing How to Get Priority Deal with Torino Done

Roma have Raoul Bellanova at the top of their shortlist to bolster the right-back position and are working to lower the request by Torino. The Granata have slapped a €25M price tag on the youngster following a bounce-back season after his paltry loan spell at Inter, Il Tempo reports (via Mediaset). He scored once and tallied 7 assists, earning a call-up for Euro 2024.

The Giallorossi don’t want to spend that much as their budget isn’t too large to begin with. They aim to utilize most of it to fortify their frontline. On the other hand, they might be able to lower the disbursement through a partial swap.

Roma are ready to dangle Nicola Zalewski in exchange for Bellanova, adding €10/12M to the package. The Giallorossi also intend to finally sell Rick Karsdorp. AEK Athens is targeting him.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Pole might prefer staying in Italy over going abroad. The capital club would still register a significant ‘plusvalenza,’ as he’s a homegrown product, despite the prospective formula of the deal. He went backward last season, starting just 15 times and struggling to adapt to Daniele De Rossi’s schemes for the most part.

Our Take on Roma and Bellanova

The trade would benefit all parties involved. The Italian fullback will get to return to a big team, which he fully deserves after what he showed last season, Zalewski would have a regular role in a formation more suitable to his traits, and Torino might flip him for a profit later on. On the other hand, minnows generally prefer to cash in fully on their profitable assets.
