Roma Shortlist Lille Star as Splashy Offensive Addition

The no.9 role will be one of the top priorities for new Roma exec Florent Ghisolfi, and he has earmarked a player he’s familiar with, Jonathan David, should the team be in a position to make a high-profile move, Corriere dello Sport relayed.

The former Nice official was appointed as head of the technical area rather than the sporting director. The Giallorossi higher-ups hope he’ll be more of a team player than Tiago Pinto, who just joined Bournemouth.

Roma will need to decide whether to lean on Tammy Abraham or cash in on him and target David or another quality center-forward. The Lille star is likely to depart since his contract is up in 2025. Despite that Les Dogues want a rich sum. The competition is very fierce. Other teams would easily be able to offer higher wages. He’ll participate in the Copa America before sorting his future.

Ghisolfi has a strong track record when it comes to strikers. He acquired Lois Openda when he was at Lens, eventually selling him for more than double what he had paid. Instead, he purchased Terem Moffi at his most recent club with pretty good results.

The Giallorossi won’t sign Nahitan Nandez after all. He quickly put pen to paper with Saudi team Al-Qadsiah after his last game with Cagliari.

Our Take on Roma and David

He’d be a very interesting fit for Daniele De Rossi’s quick, technical, and straightforward style. However, it’ll probably be tough for them to find a team willing to spend Abraham, who came in with a €41M price tag, a few months after he returned from a massive injury.

  1. No thanks, rather have someone like Andrea Pinamonti for way less money think he would do well at Roma
