Massara continues for the winter

John Solano

La Gazzetta dello Sport: The new sporting director Rocky Massara continues to gather information for the winter transfer window. Defrel of Sassuolo is a concrete goal and there was more than a phone call from Trigoria to address the issue. However, to understand the feasibility of the deal takes patience. Defrel has the ideal characteristics for Spalletti’s style of play, he is a good option for all of the roles i. attack. He was already being followed by Sabatini, who had tried to take him last January. But the first price quote of €20 million is not typically a negotiations for the winter despite the many interests at stake Sassuolo: Ricci has so far not convinced Di Francesco and does not have the certainty of being redeemed by the club while Pellegrini, who can return to Roma at the end of the season for €10 million via a buyback clause, will not be used as bargaining chips. If anything, a youngster such as Marchizza or Tumminello may be used to whet the interest of Sassuolo.

Meanwhile, Roma have inquired for information on an “old flame”: Luis Muriel, another popular target of Sabatini. Relations with Samp president Ferrero and the player are good, so much so that the talks between the parties for the striker have have also included the names of two midfielders: Linetty and Torreira. However, Muriel has a very high price just like Defrel, nearly €20 million, so it is not easy to tear him away from Sampdoria.
