Uçan to be used in Iturbe deal?

According to Italian based newspaper Il Tempo, Roma have made an offer for Shakhtar Donetsk’s Brazilian striker Luiz Adriano. Il Tempo report that Luiz Adriano is valued at €15 million by his Ukranian club but Roma will look to negotiate for a lower fee.

Also in this morning’s edition of Il Tempo is news regarding the imminent transfer of Salih Uçan to Roma. According to reports, Uçan will join Roma in this transfer window but will be loaned out to another Italian club for one season before finally joining the Giallorossi first team. Hellas Verona are being reported as the most likely destination for the young Turkish midfieder especially considering the good relationship between Walter Sabatini and Sean Sogliano.

Reports earlier this month suggested that Uçan’s loan move to Verona would be used as a sweetener for Roma’s potential move for Juan Iturbe.
