Roma Shortlist Ghanaian Speedster as Chiesa Fallback

Roma intend to shore up their wings this summer and, on top of Federico Chiesa, they have displayed interest in Ernest Nuamah. The Giallorossi might be busy on the Ligue 1 market after poaching director Florent Ghisolfi from Nice.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the capital club is keen on the youngster especially because he can play on either flank. He spent most of last season on loan from RWD Molenbeek to Lyon, which have the same ownership. He scored four goals in as many Superligane games. Instead, he hit the net 3 times and logged 2 assists in 29 games in the French championship.

Nuamah would be an expensive target for Roma since he was signed for €25M from Nordsjaelland last August, but he might be a little more affordable than Chiesa. Per TuttoSport, while the winger is available due to his short-term contract, the Bianconeri have slapped a €40M price tag on him.

Roma currently have just Stephan El Shaarawy and Nicola Zalewski as far as pure wingers are concerned. Paulo Dybala and Tommaso Baldanzi have handled the other side of the pitch when Daniele De Rossi decided to go with more width.

Our Take on Roma, Nuamah, and Chiesa

If they can’t sell Tammy Abraham and thus invest in a quality center-forward, they should focus a lot of their resources on this. They should preferably double-dip, as Zalewski might have become too defensive-minded under José Mourinho to be impactful enough in the final third to be part of a proper trident.
