Roma ready to hand Tumminello a new contract

Roma are ready to tie down Primavera attacker Marco Tumminello to the capital with a new contract, reports Gianluca Di Marzio.

Tumminello has shined this season under Alberto De Rossi and the Giallorossi want to hand the player a five-year contract to ward off interest from Everton, Watford and Liverpool, who have been observing the player for a long time. Roma want to avoid another “Scamacca situation”: another talented youngster who left Roma but for free.

Roma and the entourage of Tumminello have found satisfaction in the agreement, which will keep the player in the house of the Giallorossi.
