Roma Reportedly Monitor Two Promising Lecce Fullbacks

Roma have more question marks than certainties on their defensive wings and set sights on Lecce to restock them, earmarking Valentin Gendrey and Patrick Dorgu. Angelino might be their only current fullback still on the squad next season, but they’ll have to redeem him from Galatasaray, Leggo informs (via FootballNews24).

The Giallorossi will have to spend about €5M to keep him. Instead, they are unlikely to retain Rasmus Kristensen, who’s on loan from Leeds United with no option to buy. They’ll try to offload Zeki Celik and especially Rick Karsdorp, who have been poor this season.

Leonardo Spinazzola is on an expiring contract. While Daniele De Rossi is angling for his permanence, he must accept a pay cut to re-up. He has been making €3M annually in the past five years, Tuttomercatoweb informs. He’s more likely to be let go than to stay.

Roma joined the long list of teams pursuing Dorgu, whom Lecce are expected to profit from, while Gendrey is less touted. The former has shown remarkable versatility after the arrival of Luca Gotti.

The Frenchman has spent three campaigns with the Salentini, registering 2 goals and 8 assists in 106 appearances.

Our Take on Roma, Dorgu, and Gendrey

The latter is solid but would probably be a backup in a big team, while the talent is on the rise but needs some work to be a good fit for a four-man defense. He’d match their reported strategy but might be pretty pricey due to his immense upside.
