Roma are eyeing Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata.
The Columbian attacker is currently the capital club’s number one priority – along with Marcos Leonardo – as Roma continue their search for a veteran forward who could help solve Roma’s goal-scoring issues.
According to Corriere dello Sport, however, there is a major gap in what Roma are willing to offer for Zapata and what Atalanta are currently asking for.
The Bergamaschi want to permanently part ways with Zapata this summer and are thus hoping to include an obligation in an eventual loan deal.
As reported by Italian newspaper, Atalanta seek a fixed fee of €3 million for Zapata’s loan and obligation to buy for €6-7 million at the end of the season.
For the time being, Roma have limited themselves to offering €1 million.
