Roma to Make Long-Shoot Attempt to Keep Juventus Loanee

Dean Huijsen has had a good impact at Roma following the transfer from Juventus despite the coaching and schematic change, which might reduce his prospective playing time. The Giallorossi have seen enough already to start considering signing him permanently, even though there’s no option to buy in the deal with the Bianconeri, La Repubblica informs (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The defense of the capital club will be in flux. They will redeem Diego Llorente for €5M from Leeds United. They could keep him, but their top idea is to sell him for a much higher sum. He was linked to PSG in January. They need €50M ‘plusvalenze’ by the end of June for financial reasons.

After the deadline, Roma will use the income to try adding Huijsen outright from Juventus. His price tag starts from €15M, but it could easily increase depending on the Bianconeri’s projects for him and the interest from other sides.

Per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig are keen. The Old Lady will listen only if a team puts €25/30M on the table. The center-back kept things close to the vest when asked about it, but the Old Lady wants him in their future squad, TuttoSport informs.

Our Take on Roma, Juventus, and Huijsen

The Giallorossi might become a player in these situations following the investment in Tommaso Baldanzi, but the ball is in the Bianconeri’s court. It’ll be tough for him to find room this season. The most likely outcome is another loan next summer.
