Corriere dello Sport have reported that Roma continue to look to reinforce the midfield in the January transfer market.
Reportedly, Di Francesco and Monchi have been meeting on a daily basis regarding the subject, bearing in mind the needs of a team that struggles to score, despite the Spaniard saying that there would not be any purchases in the window. The midfield’s quality could certainly be improved, especially in the role of playmaker. After De Rossi and Gonalons’s poor seasons, Milan Badelj remains the profile the Giallorossi prefer. Roma have maintained contact with the Croatian’s entourage, however, it will not be easy to pry him away from Fiorentina despite the fact he has an expiring contract in the summer. For the future, Monchi is interested in another Croatian: Ante Ćorić of Dinamo Zagreb.
Roma still have a complex financial situation and they do not want to “overdo it” in January despite the extra €20 million earned thanks to qualifying for the Champions League round of 16. A full-back could be incorporated into the roster, however, only in the event of a sale between Bruno Peres or Emerson.
