Garcia reassures Alessandro Florenzi

After the arrival of Juan Iturbe, several Italian outlets reported that Alessandro Florenzi may look for a move away from Roma. This, however, has been disputed today by reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport and Il Corriere della Sera.

The two papers have intercepted a conversation held between manager Rudi Garcia and winger Alessandro Florenzi in which the French manager has told Florenzi, “I need a lot of big players like you.” Rumors continue to swirl about the possible arrival of Monaco’s Carrasco, but Florenzi will not be sold and offers are not being listened to by Roma. The same cannot be said, however, for Adem Ljajic, who Roma may look to sell if an offer near €10 million is received.
