Gianluca Di Marzio has released an update on the transfer market of Roma.
Roma are working to find the right defender to give to Spalletti and the club has opened contact with Barcelona for Thomas Vermaelen. The player is the first choice of Roma, who would prefer to get him on loan an option to buy. At the moment, there is no agreement between the parties because Barcelona has put a price tag of €15 million on the player. The Giallorossi do not want to make an investment this expensive given the physical problems Vermaelen has had in recent years.
As an alternative, there is Federico Fazio of Tottenham, who Roma are still talking for an could arrive on loan. In the last hours, an inquiry has been made for Schalke’s Kolasinac, while there is a slight reopening for Nacho from Real Madrid.
