Nicolo Zaniolo is now being linked with an exit from the capital club in January.
As a result, Roma are considering potential mid-season investments. According to calciomercato.com, Zaniolo’s potential departure could unlock Roma’s negotiations with Sassuolo for Davide Frattesi.
The Giallorossi have been in talks for the Italian midfielder since last summer, but circumstances related to Roma’s FFP restrictions have prevented Mourinho’s side to strike a deal with the Neroverdi.
With Zaniolo’s sale, Roma would be able to advance a cash proposal for Frattesi.
