Roma accelerating for Chelsea’s Pedro

John Solano

Roma continue to plan for their summer transfer market as sporting director Gianluca Petrachi continues to eye potential reinforcements.

As for likely targets, Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo has reported that the Giallorossi believe they have Chelsea attacker Pedro in their hands for the summer.

Reportedly, Roma will work to try and thin-out their roster this summer by hopefully selling names such as Juan Jesus, Diego Perotti, and Federico Fazio in order to hold on to their most two prized possessions: Nicolo Zaniolo and Lorenzo Pellegrini.

To do this, though, the club will have to sacrifice some players — and that could come in the form of Cengiz Ünder and/or Justin Kluivert.

Should the Dutchman or the Turk depart, the Giallorossi are ready to sign Pedro, who is also liked by Juve, on a free transfer from the London-based side.

However, Roma can only strike the final blow in bringing the player to the Italian capital once a few sales are made.
