The Italian representative of Sven Botman, Francesco Miniero, spoke to calciomercato.it and confirmed the Giallorossi’s interest in the talented Lille defender.
“Sven is very focused on Lille, a club that has grown a lot in terms of visibility and appeal.”
“Objectively, we must say that he is one of the strongest defenders in Europe, many clubs like him. I think all the top Italian clubs like him.”
“Buying such a footballer in January requires a significant financial effort and I don’t know who can afford it. I think we also exceed 30 million in figures.”
“Obviously, it would be an honor for me to be able to bring him to Italy and I can assure you that he would like to play in Italy.”
Miniero briefly touched upon Roma’s interest in the 21-year-old player.
“I also met with Roma, but they’re not the only ones after him. Unfortunately, today the problem is always the same: the financial aspect of the operation. But above all, Lille really care about this guy and want to keep him.”
