Roma Expected to Kick the Tires for Euro 2024 Standout

Georges Mikautadze was one of the surprise protagonists of Euro 2024, and Roma have started thinking about him to bolster their frontline. They have lost Romelu Lukaku, who returned to Chelsea after a loan spell, and are looking for a buyer for Tammy Abraham.

According to Il Messaggero (via OneFootball), the Giallorossi are keeping in touch with Villarreal for Alexander Sorloth. However, the counterparty isn’t moving from their considerable requests.

Roma might soon have to pivot toward different targets, and Mikautadze is on such a shortlist. They’d have to move quickly, though. He’s in high demand after shining during the international tournament. Monaco, in particular, is making waves to purchase him.

Metz bought him out for €13M following a loan spell from Ajax. He won’t stay after they got relegated to Ligue 2. He tallied 13 goals and 4 assists after returning in January, but his heroics weren’t enough. The Dutch team had signed him for €16M the previous summer, but he didn’t find his footing in Eredivisie.

The 23-year-old also starred for Seraing earlier in his career. He can play in different roles but had his best stretches as a center-forward despite his size. He hit the net four times during Euro 2024, carrying his team to the Round of 16.

Our Take on Roma and Mikautadze

He’d be an intriguing acquisition considering their fast pace and his traits. Whether the Giallorossi will be aggressive in signing a new striker before offloading Tammy Abraham is a big question mark that could cost them some good opportunities.
