Roma offered Lacazette but deemed the Frenchman too expensive


Roma continue to look for reinforcements both in attack and at the back before the close of the transfer window.

One role the Giallorossi are looking to reinforce is the striker position as the capital club is looking to bring in a name that can be an alternative or potentially the eventual replacement to 34 year-old Edin Dzeko.

Shockingly, a report from La Stampa journalist Matteo De Santis claims that the Giallorossi rejected the opportunity to sign Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Reportedly, a couple of intermediaries offered the former Lyon man to Roma last week.

The Giallorossi’s new owners, Dan and Ryan Friedkin, though, did not give the “OK” for the club to splash the necessary cash for the attacker — who was deemed to expensive between the potential fee and the wages he was requesting.
