The former captain of the Giallorossi landed in Paris today to undergo medicals and sign a contract with PSG. Roma needs a new right-back before the season starts.
As reported by the Italian journalist and transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano through his official Twitter account, Alessandro Florenzi landed in Paris to begin his new professional adventure at PSG. The Italian fullback should be traded out on loan. The Parisian club should have negotiated an option to purchase the player at the end of the season.
Roma needs a new right back
The Giallorossi need a new addition on that side of the pitch. Paulo Fonseca can now count only on Santon, Peres, and Karsdorp to cover that key role. But reportedly, the Dutch player may join Genoa soon, Santon is often unavailable, and the Brazilian fullback, instead, clearly is more prone to perform a good offensive phase rather than helping in defense.
Florenzi’s departure means that Roma goes ahead with its goal of lowering the operative costs of a very expensive roster. But the passionate fans of the Lupi really believe that their beloved team needs a new right-back to fill the gap left by the Italy international.
With Roma finalizing Chris Smalling‘s deal, the management of the Lupi is also reportedly moving forward for another defender. The name is still top secret but the feeling is that Paulo Fonseca will have a new option as a right-back soon.
