Il Tempo journalist Alessandro Austini has reported that Roma are in the final sprint of their transfer business: if a winger does arrive, it will be Corinthians’ Mateus Vital, not Rodrigo De Paul or Luan. The Giallorossi were heavily linked to both the Argentine of Udinese and the 26 year-old of Gremio, however, neither will join Roma.
Meanwhile, a deal is all done and agreed upon for Atletico Madrid striker Nikola Kalinic, however, Roma must finalise the transfer of Patrik Schick to RB Leipzig. The Giallorossi and the German side are still in talks for the Czech attacker.
Mercato Roma al rush finale:
