Roma are chasing the Atalanta defender Mancini but Defrel could be the right piece to complete the puzzle. Atalanta are interested in the striker.
There are different ways to finalize a purchase. Although you can’t throw a briefcase full of cash on a table, a buyer can satisfy the economic request of the seller by paying the right amount or including interesting players to make a deal.
The latter could be the right approach for Roma to convince Atalanta to sell their skilled defender Gianluca Mancini.
Defrel could be highly influential in this deal, though. The striker is still owned by the Lupi albeit he is currently playing with Sampdoria. The blucerchiati could purchase the player by paying about €18 million to the giallorossi but likely they will not do so.
The former Sassuolo man will return to the eternal city at the end of the season but he could be redirected to Bergamo right away.
As reported by TuttoSport, Atalanta are interested in him and Monchi could be working on this possibility.
