Yesterday, Giampiero Pocetta, the agent of Sassuolo attacker Gregoire Defrel, spoke to PagineRomaniste and conceded that Roma have their eyes on his client:
“He’s player who has attracted much attention, and huge clubs are watching him, I know that he is liked. But to talk about the market right now seems out of place. I know for certain that like Roma like him, it’s a place where there are some good football connoisseurs. ”
Today, La Gazzetta dello Sport also confirmed that Roma are looking for an attacker for the January market and that Defrel could be a possibility. Sporting director Ricky Massara is monitoring the market and listening to the suggestions of Sabatini, who left today for a few days to Tel Aviv on vacation. Sveral players have already been taken into account and some have already been rejected. But Defrel is one who hits the markers that all at the club like. He’s versatile, technical, quick, and has the admiration of Spalletti. Should Sassuolo not advance in the Europa League, they may be tempted to sell so they do not continue to risk their league position and bring reinforcements. Napoli also like the player but the relationship between Roma and Sassuolo is strong. Roma could be tempted to even insert a youngster like Soleri or Marchizza into the talks.
