RomaPress – Roma General Director Tiago Pinto returned to Rome today, accompanied by the club’s new striker and Edin Dzeko replacement: Tammy Abraham.
It marked the end of the Portuguese’s four-day long stay in London, which included meetings with several agents for both incoming and outgoing business.
After securing the transfer of Abraham, the Giallorossi will turn their attention to offloading the several players that don’t factor into the club’s plans, including: Steven Nzonzi, Alessandro Florenzi, Javier Pastore, Pedro, and Federico Fazio.
In addition, Roma will also likely decide about a potential departure between one of Amadou Diawara or Gonzalo Villar.
Manager Jose Mourinho still wants to bring a new midfield addition before the start of the season and the Guinean and Spaniard are the primary candidates to be sacrificed in order to make this happen.
Diawara has drawn interest from several clubs this summer, including Wolverhampton and Torino. However, a member of the midfielder’s entourage confirms that neither club has presented a concrete offer.
Diawara’s agent, Daniele Piraino, hasn’t held talks with Wolves and there’s currently no ongoing negotiation involving the midfielder.
However, this could change in the coming days—at which point the player and his representatives would make their evaluations.
