Basel enter race for Roma’s Riccardo Calafiori

Andy Mattioli

Riccardo Calafiori is one step away from determining his future away from the Italian capital after being frozen out from Mourinho’s preseason. The Italian fullback is now being linked with an imminent exit on a permanent basis.

Earlier today, reports stated that Anderlecht had made a proposal for the 20-year-old. However, Sportitalia claim that FC Basel have entered the race for Calafiori and are now deemed favorites to land him only two days away from the transfer deadline.

The Swiss club are reportedly in advanced talks with Calafiori whose recent loan spell at Genoa proved disastrous. Frosinone are monitoring the situation, but the player seems more inclined to accept a proposal from abroad at the moment.
