Report: Lyon and Marseille Target Roma’s NZonzi

The French midfielder could leave the Italian capital this summer. Nzonzi comes off of a disappointing season and Roma may be willing to trade him out in this transfer window.

There are no non-transferable players in a football world that is strictly based on essential financial principles. This strategy is not applied only by the club of the American tycoon Pallotta but by all those who approach and invest in this fantastic sport.

Steven NZonzi may be traded out by the Lupi this summer albeit the Frenchman joined the Giallorossi only one year ago. The 30-year-old from Colombes (France), moved from Sevilla to Roma on August 14, 2018. The club of Trigoria had paid about €26 million to the Spanish side.

After a very disappointing season, the midfielder may leave the eternal city before the end of the current transfer session. According to Sky Sport, Lyon and Marseille are interested in him. NZonzi’s price-tag is reportedly about €30m.

If the France international will leave the Italian capital, the Giallorossi would need another top midfielder with similar skills. Paulo Fonseca may be pushing for Fred again. On July 13, 2019, I focused on why the Brazilian man may be for the Portuguese coach what Roma really needs.

Fred May be For Fonseca What Roma Really Needs in Midfield

In the 2016-17 and 2017-18 campaigns, Paulo Fonseca gave him the keys of his midfield. In the two years spent with the Portuguese coach, Fred played 66 caps and scored 8 goals and 11 assists. He was a vital man for Shakhtar Donetsk and played about 5,700 minutes in two seasons.
