Massara looking to close for Defrel mid week, eyes midfielder


Leggo: Sassuolo is surrendering.

The desire of Defrel is to play in Rome. The Giallorossi are offering nearly €20 million for the Frenchman between loan (€2 million) and purchase (€18 million) while also potentially offering names like Ricci into the operation. Yesterday, the Frenchman was left on the bench for a second time in a row by Di Francesco while director Carnivale seemed to have changed his tune about the player saying, “We would like to keep him, but let’s see what happens.” Massara aims to close the deal by mid-week and then try to take a midfielder last minute. He likes Donsah of Bologna while Hiljemark of Palermo, who they were linked to late last week, prefers Dynamo Kiev.
