The domino effect that would see a string of transfers take place between Roma, Juventus and Napoli is starting to take shape.
Calciomercato.it has revealed that the deal involving Roma’s Edin Dzeko, Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, and Roma attacker Cengiz Ünder and midfielder Alessio Riccardi is starting to gain momentum.
Reportedly, there will be refreshed contact between Roma and Napoli’s Polish international today: personal terms have already been agreed to and now the sides will try to convince Gattuso’s side, which has become the main problem within the last hours, to accept the deal to allow the striker to leave Campania.
In addition to Ünder and Riccardi, the Partenopei are also requesting €20 million from Roma for Milik — a figure they deem excessive. The Giallorossi, however, would be willing to offer €8-10 million.
Juventus, meanwhile, are playing the role of spectators. They already have an agreement in place with Edin Dzeko on a two year contract, and are willing to pay more than €10 million for the Bosnian.
However, the transfer of the ex-Wolfsburg attacker to the Bianconeri will only happen once the deal to bring Milik to Roma is finalised — making this three-way deal a delicate yet complex negotiation.
The clubs will work throughout the weekend to try and find a solution.
