After a long reflection, it seems that the Giallorossi have decided to keep Patrik Schick this January and hope that sooner or later the Czech striker will justify the €42 million invested on him, reports La Repubblica. The priority for Di Francesco is a central midfielder who has quality but is also able to recover the ball. The Italian manager has not lost his hope for Weigl, who is being used little at Borussia Dortmund. Samassekou from Salzburg is also on the list, but at the moment, the hottest name is Leander Dendoncker, 23-year-old Belgian mediano who is now at Wolves on loan but owned by Anderlecht. For the back, Maidana of Sao Paolo is being eyed but Monchi remains very interested in players with expiring contracts in June 2019, including full-back Ashley Young.
