The Giallorssi are chasing the Italian midfielder but Atalanta could be interested in including Defrel in the deal. President Percassi confirmed that Gasperini wants a new winger.
The upcoming transfer window could be really interesting for Roma. After its stunning international season, Roma has a more liquidity to pour into the market to strengthen Di Francesco‘s roster.
The Italian coach is in total agreement with Monchi. Roma needs a new midfielder, a player faster and more creative than Strootman & co. Bryan Cristante is on the agenda of the Roma sporting director.
Reportedly, the Spaniard is working on different tables to close multiple deals in order to give Di Francesco the right players before the summer retreat.
Atalanta and Roma could, therefore, finalize an interesting deal for both teams. Cristante could land close to the Colosseum while Defrel could join Gasperini‘s group soon.
Atalanta’s president Antonio Percassi spoke with the Italian outlet ‘Gazzetta dello Sport’ stating that Bryan Cristante could be traded out in this summer transfer window.
“I don’t know what can happen. His loss would certainly be a shame. He is an incredible talent. Gasperini has changed his engine. He demonstrated a great attitude and sacrifice. He seemed lost but he’s been able to react properly.”
“Defrel? We are looking for a striker and a winger. But I cannot tell you names.”
