Could Fonseca play Dzeko-Milik together next season?

Marco Iacobucci Epp /

The Roma world is still waiting for the change of ownership while rumors are reporting on Roma’s growing interest for Napoli’s star Milik.

When the change of ownership of the Giallorossi will take place (Monday?), the management of the club will work hard to select a new sporting director, a key role to rebuild a team that disappointed the fans of the Lupi this season.

But this is the moment to act, talk, and put in place possible transfer market operations to strengthen the roster for the 2020-21 campaign. Nobody knows if Paulo Fonseca will still be the leader of the group when Serie A restarts albeit it would be difficult to change coach at this time.

The Portuguese coach deserves a second chance. The multiple injuries suffered by his players last season definitely affected their overall performance and the development of Fonseca’s strategies on the pitch.

Edin Dzeko is the captain and one of the leaders of the team. But he needs help to finalize the opportunities and drag his teammates to the glory. Arkadiusz Milik would be a great addition to the Roma roster, another star who would come to play and try to win.

If Roma and Napoli find an agreement, the Poland international would not land in the Eternal City just to replace Dzeko sometime. With two players of that class and efficiency, Paulo Fonseca would be forced to change the tactical system once again. In that case, the 3-4-2-1 wouldn’t work anymore while the 3-4-1-2 would boost the offensive quality of the Lupi, instead.

Dzeko and Milik may, therefore, play together next season but what about Zaniolo, Mkhitaryan, Pellegrini, and Pedro? The Armenia international could play as a trequartista behind that marvelous pair of strikers while the Italian star could be redirected on the right flank. Pedro may operate as a left fullback and Pellegrini dropped in midfield together with Veretout and Diawara (or Torreira).

Fonseca’s new starting eleven may be very offensive next season. It may be too offensive for the tactical Italian football but it would be a joy to see all those offensive stars play together.
