Transfer rumors persist amidst Roma’s financial struggles


Transfer rumours have been a huge part of football across the globe towards the end of every season as stars begin to look at prospects with other teams. But during a time of uncertainty, all eyes are on the transfer market to see who in the Serie A will make a switch and how it will impact the clubs moving forwards.

Ongoing financial troubles For Roma

As with many clubs during this unprecedented time, Roma has been rumoured to be experiencing financial problems. With the recent news of a voluntary pay cut of four months’ wages for players as well as management, it is not looking promising for the club at this time. Despite having an incredibly talented side, the lack of matches being played is proving to be a problem for the club.

However, this voluntary salary reduction has shown unity throughout the club and has resulted in other staff members receiving pay as the lack of ticket sales and other revenue sources continues to take its toll.

Transfer rumors swirling

Despite these ongoing financially challenging times, there are still transfer rumours circulating that could prove valuable for the side.

Several Premier League clubs such as Liverpool, Everton and Tottenham have registered their interest in some of the Giallorossi’s top players – which could prove an opportunity for the capital club to cash-in and help alleviate their financial struggles.

With many taking bets on Serie A and the signings that could be made at the end of the season, the excitement is higher than ever before, so we suggest you to keep track on this trend at the different bookmakers available.

Nicolo Zaniolo
The young starlet is one the names many tip to leave the club in the near future. The attacker has already drawn interest from Liverpool and could be the subject of a significant transfer offer. At just 20 years-old, Zaniolo outdid himself in 2018/2019 and continued his great form into January 2020 before suffering a torn ACL.

The youngster has proven himself to be extremely versatile with the ability to play variety of positions. However, the Reds could face competition to secure Zaniolo’s signature as Juventus, Manchester United, and Tottenham are also interested.

Edin Dzeko
Despite his age, the Bosnian continues to receive interest throughout Europe. Dzeko turned down an approach in the past from Chelsea and recently admitted he would prefer to stay in Rome than train in the pouring rain in Merseyside with Everton.

However, if interest from the Premier League continues and a club presents an interesting offer, could we see Roma cash-in on the former Manchester City man if the price is right?

Lorenzo Pellegrini
The Rome-born midfielder is another who has been drawing heavy interested during this period.

Several European giants, including PSG, have expressed their interest in Pellegrini and a summer move cannot be ruled out. After having grown-up in Roma’s academy, Pellegrini joined Sassuolo in 2015, where he played for two seasons, before returning to the club in 2017.

Pellegrini currently has a £27 million release clause in his contract, which has also led to the likes of Juve and Milan being keen on the player. Should Roma be forced to sell this summer to help improve their financial position, the club could realise an impressive profit if Pellegrini were to be the one sold.

Whether you’re a fan of the Serie A or just enjoy reading the latest transfer rumours, the upcoming summer transfer market will be extremely unique as we await a final decision as to whether or not football will resume in Italy and Germany.
