Roma Shortlist a Couple More Soon-to-Be Free Agents

Roma won’t splurge this summer, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try to bolster their squad. After securing Houssem Aouar on a Bosman transfer, the Giallorossi are looking to replicate the same move with other players.

According to Fabrizio Romano (via OneFootball), they have set sights on Ellyes Skhiri, whose contract with Koln is about to run out. The 28-year-old midfielder has played in Bundesliga since 2019 after joining from Montpellier. He has amassed 131 appearances, 20 goals, and 8 assists since then. He has 54 caps with Tunisia under his belt, hitting the net 3 times.

Roma are playing on multiple tables and reached out to Wilfried Zaha, who is on his way out from Crystal Palace. According to French journalist Thibaud Vezirian, the Giallorossi are the only sides currently in touch with him. The winger has occasionally been linked to a move to Serie A in the past, but it never materialized. He has logged 7 goals and 2 assists in 27 Premier League matches this season.

The capital side has long been tracking Evan N’Dicka. The recent meeting with his agency AMS Talent Consulting at the Trigoria training center was productive. Per Goal, they have struck an agreement in principle on a four-year contract with €3M wages.

Our Take on Roma

It’s a crucial time for the Giallorossi, which have to tend to multiple matters. Bosman additions need to be set up well in advance. Snatching the Eintracht Frankfurt star on a free would be another coup. In addition, Tiago Pinto is getting busy to prove to José Mourinho, who might need some convincing to stay, that they can still significantly improve their roster despite their limited economic firepower.
