With the transfer deadline only a few hours away, Roma are still keeping their options open to further strengthen Jose Mourinho’s defense. The Special One admitted in a recent interview that had it not been for Gini Wijnaldum’s injury, the capital club would have invested in another central defender.
General Manager Tiago Pinto will be Milan today to finalize several other deals including outgoing transfers for Justin Kluivert and Ante Coric. In the meantime, Il Messaggero reports that the Giallorossi remain in contact with some defenders on the market.
Free agent Dan-Axel Zagadou is one of the options being considered by Pinto. However, the player’s financial demands are deemed too high and Inter have also come forward with a concrete offer.
On the other hand, Tottenham’s Japhet Tanganga is an objective appreciated by Mourinho and the club’s management. Milan are also monitoring the 23-year-old defender who has been excluded from Antonio Conte’s plans for the season.
