Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport shared his thoughts on Roma’s transfer business this summer.
The transfer-market expert spoke to Il Tempo about Tiago Pinto’s moves as well as the long-awaited arrival of Gianluca Scamacca from West Ham.
“So far Roma has been the great protagonist from two points of view: on the one hand they have managed, as they did last year with Dybala and Matic, to sign a player like Aouar on a free transfer who was also followed by Napoli.”
“Then there is Ndicka, for whom there was strong interest from Milan, and also bringing Llorente back from Leeds and most likely accompanying him with Kristensen, therefore four operations at no cost.”
“On the other hand, the outgoing transfers – 30 million in capital gains were needed for the settlement agreement with UEFA and being able to obtain almost all of them, around 27-28, without selling any of the starting players was a masterpiece on the part of Tiago Pinto.”
“I would say that Roma have already done a lot by managing to balance the need to sell and the ability to improve the squad, then it’s clear that they have to sign a striker because Abraham was hurt, but I think Scamacca will eventually join them on loan. It will take time and patience.”
