Roma’s Borja Mayoral could be on the move next month when the winter transfer market begins.

The Spanish attacker has long been linked with a January exit from the club after seeing a significant reduction in his role within the team. As a result, Real Madrid, his parent club, are considering the possibility of selling the player permanently in January.

Despite leading the Giallorossi in scoring last season, Mayoral has fallen behind Tammy Abraham and Eldor Shomurodov in José Mourinho’s pecking order this season.

Mayoral experienced his most successful season as a professional in 2020/2021, tallying 17 goals and 8 assists in all competition. This campaign, though, he has only 1 goal and 1 assist in ten appearances.

Several clubs have expressed interest in acquiring the 24 year-old, including Fiorentina, as his parent club Real Madrid expires this summer, including Fiorentina. However, La Nazione reports that another suitor has emerged in recent days.

Reportedly, Los Blancos recently opened conversations with Crystal Palace to discuss a permanent transfer for the striker. The two sides are still in talks but the deal could cost a total of €15 million.
