Roma sporting director Monchi has his sights set on Sporting right back Cristiano Piccini. On the table is an offer of €10 million plus €5 million in bonuses according to Il Corriere della Sera. Monchi wants the former Fiorentina and Betis player, who would represent the ideal alternative to Karsdorp on the right: he’s ready to play and moderately experienced in all competitions. The Italian fullback would fill the gap left by Bruno Peres, who is for sale, and also Florenzi, who is waiting to know what will be of his future.
Within a week, the real negotiations for the renewal of Florenzi will begin: the Giallorossi are ready to offer a figure of €3 million (net) per season. Meanwhile, the vice captain of the Giallorossi is leveraging his relationship with Bryan Cristante while on national team duty and trying to convince the Atalanta man to move to the capital. For Cristante’s move to Trigoria, the only thing missing is Atalanta’s agreement for Defrel. On the way out there are Juan Jesus, who has been requested by Besiktas on loan with an option to buy, and perhaps even Nainggolan, who is wanted by Spalletti.
