China calls Italy and a few Roma players could reply positively. The current scenario foresees a couple of possible deals between the Italian giants and Cannavaro’s side.

A few Roma players could be China-bound as clubs from Asia are ready to come forward. Reportedly, Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao F.C. is seriously interested in signing Radja Nainggolan and Stephan El Shaarawy. A negotiation is not in place yet but rumors are reporting that the Giallorossi are willing to evaluate bids for their offensive midfielders.

Although the Roma sporting director Monchi was trying to redirect El Shaarawy to Florence in order to complete an amazing but expensive swap between the Italian/Egyptian and Federico Chiesa, nowadays the situation has changed.

The Roma left-winger could be traded out shorty but in China. Fabio Cannavaro‘s side  Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao F.C. is poised to bid for the talented but discontinuous El Shaarawy. Reportedly, the Giallorossi would be willing to accept €25 million.

Radja Nainggolan is Cannavaro next objective as well. The former Italian international knows the quality of the Ninja. He chased the Belgian star even last summer but without finding an agreement with the club of the Italian capital. The current situation is different as Monchi seems to be willing to trade him out.

As reported by the Italian newspaper ‘Il Messaggero’, yesterday, in Milan, the Roma general manager Baldissoni had a meeting with Nainggolan’s agent. Apparently, the player is on the market but he could be traded out only if the right offer comes.

Inter is interested in Radja Nainggolan as well. Spalletti could spend up to €40 million for the Belgian midfielder but an offer could be made not before July 1st, 2018, due to the tough financial fair play regulations imposed by UEFA.
