Roma needs a new left-winger and the Brazilian would be happy to move to the Italian capital. Fonseca pushes for Taison.
The countdown is almost over. The Giallorossi need to speed up the process to not compromise another season.
Roma sporting director Petrachi is likely working on multiple tables to finalize a few necessary acquisitions before September 2nd, the end of the European transfer window.
Taison is Fonseca‘s favorite player to replace Perotti. The Argentine will be out for at least two months and Kluivert is a talent who needs more time to make a difference.
According to the Italian outlet Il Tempo, the Portuguese coach is playing a pivotal role in this negotiation. Taison wants Roma and viceversa but Shakhtar is not happy to let him go at a discount.
Reportedly, the Ukrainian side is asking about €25-30 million for Taison and the Giallorossi have no intention to even get closer that amount.
Il Tempo reports that the agents of the player are working on a loan with a obligation-to-pay in three years.
