Roma Scrambling to Offload More Outcasts in Final Days

Roma are hard at work to part ways with the remaining outcasts left on the roster in the final moments of the summer window. They had finally reached agreement with Fulham for Justin Kluivert, but the move has basically collapsed. The winger doesn’t fit the criteria to get a work permit in England, The Athletic reports.

The Giallorossi will have to scramble to find another destination. Instead, after failing out of favor a long time ago, Amadou Diawara will join Anderlecht on a €3M permanent deal with a 50 percent sell-on clause, Corriere dello Sport reports.

Riccardo Calafiori has officially joined Basel. The other outcasts on their way out are Devid Bouah, who could go to Reggina, Ante Coric, William Bianda, and Alessio Riccardi, who might terminate his contract and sign with Latina. Bologna, Monza, and Torino are chasing after Eldor Shomurodov. Though, he will leave only for a robust bid, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

The Giallorossi have significantly reduced their payroll this summer. They permanently sold Jordan Veretout, Pau Lopez, Cengiz Under, and Daniel Fuzato. Misfits Gonzalo Villar, Carles Perez, and Bryan Reynolds departed on loan with options to buy, with Sampdoria, Celta Vigo, and Westerlo covering their wages. They just cashed in €6M from Cremonese for Felix Afena-Gyan.

Our Take on Roma Offloading Their Outcasts

It’s a tough break on Kluivert, who would be by far the most profitable one, in 2023, if not this summer. They haven’t even considered reintegrating him, but perhaps they should. Nicolò Zaniolo and Stephan El Shaarawy recently went down with injuries. José Mourinho has gotten a lot out of lesser players.
