After Kumbulla, Roma now interested in Verona’s Zaccagni

John Solano

After having agreed to a deal in August for defender Marash Kumbulla, Roma and Hellas Verona could, once again, do business this month.

Versatile attacking midfielder Mattia Zaccagni has been one of the surprises so far this season in Serie A. With 3 goals and 4 assists to his name this campaign, Inter, Lazio, and Roma have all expressed their interest in acquiring the 25 year-old.

According to L’Arena di Verona, the Giallorossi would be willing to buy the Italian permanently in January but leave him at the Venetian side on loan for the remainder of the season.

Furthermore, it’s even possible that Roma’s 29 year-old central defender, Juan Jesus, could be inserted into the deal for Zaccagni.

The Brazilian’s contract with Roma expires in June but Verona manager Ivan Jurić has requested that his side bring in a new central defender this month — a request that the capital club could exploit in their pursuit of Zaccagni.
