Roma set for major roster reconstruction

John Solano

Today’s edition of Il Messaggero has reported that Roma are set to undergo a major revolution, again, in the transfer market.

With the Financial Fair Play restrictions along with an abundance of “access” players,
Roma have some major work to do in the transfer market.

As for the players who will be sold and have been deemed as surplus to requirements, the list is very long. Adem Ljajic and Iago Falque are being eyed by Torino, however, only the Spaniard’s departure is imminent. Seydou Doumbia will also leave the club after flopping at Newcastle, but the only requests for the player have been loan offers, which do not impress Roma. Ervin Zukanovic is also likely to leave the club after only arriving in January, there have been several requests from Germany. Vasilis Torosidis will also leave along with William Vainqueur, who failed to impress in his opening season with the club. One curious case is Leandro Castan: the Brazilian has been linked to Genoa, but the player has insisted for months that he does not want to leave. Lastly, Juan Iturbe is also up for sale as Roma want to recoup as much as they can on the player.

Other probable departures include Tiago Casasola and Ezequiel Ponce, who are very close to Sporting Gijon, but only on loan. The same could be said for Umar Sadiq, who is ready to join Bologna on loan, while Elio Capradossi is being called by Cesena and Jose Machin to Sassuolo, which will also be loans.

Meanwhile, despite the rumors linking with a move to Sunderland, Edin Dzeko, for now, has decided to remain at Roma.
