Roma have lost out on Tomas Rincon.
As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, the Venezuelan midfielder is set to join Juve, who have beaten Roma for the player. Rincon will join Juve on loan with an obligation to buy as the player will land in Turin tomorrow.

Meanwhile, a reunion with Fabio Borini could be in the works.
Both Roma and Milan are interested in the ex-Liverpool forward but only on the basis of a loan with an option to buy. First contacts have been initiated by both clubs as Borini is a profile Montella and Spalletti appreciate.
However, it appears unlikely that Sunderland will accept the operations on this basis: discussions are continuing with the attacker’s agent at work to see if something can be done. If the situation does not unlock in January, it is possible the return to Italy could be postponed to June, but Fabio Borini remains a concrete solution.
