West Ham taking their time for Feghouli
- Updated: January 13, 2017
Il Tempo: The difficulties increase, but at Trigoria they are not yet prepared to raise the white flag. We are talking, of course, about the drawn out operation for Feghouli.
Talks have been put on hold until early next week, but Roma are not willing give up the track that leads to Feghouli, the reinforcement tabbed by Roma to help strengthen the team. In fact, in the capital, they have known for awhile that dealing with West Ham in any sort of quick manner would be impossible, who have decided to sell the Algerian attacker only after concluding the negotiations for the arrival of a replacement. Further complicating the situation is now the case of Payet, who wants to leave the club.
The English club would prefer’tontake their time and study their options in the market and look for two alternatives in attack and then discuss the farewell of Feghouli but only if there is a bonus tied to the operation, which is an investment that Roma are not willing to risk for a player who may only stay for six months. There is still, then, distance between the two sides, with the Giallorossi willing to make a last attempt for the loan with an option to buy before they change their focus to Musonda.
