Juan Jesus drawing interest from Turkey, Russia


Turkish football journalist, Ekrem Konur, has reported that Roma’s Juan Jesus is drawing interest from abroad, including Turkey.

Reportedly, Fenerbahçe and Russian sides Krasnodar and Rubin Kazan are interested in the Brazilian defender, who has made only 3 appearances for the Giallorossi this term.

Roma will be eager to sell the 29 year-old this summer due to his large wages, which weigh heavily on the club’s balance sheet. The former Inter man earns over €2 million (net) per season despite being arguably Paulo Fonseca’s fifth choice central defender.

The player joined Roma in the summer of 2016 on an initial loan for €2 million with an obligation to buy for €8 million.
