Di Francesco waiting for Roma, who already are looking towards the market


Alfredo Pedulla: Eusebio Di Francesco is waiting on Roma, but the Giallorossi are already at work on the market. One priority for Roma is Lorenzo Pellegrini, who is held in high esteem by Di Francesco, and who Roma have an option to repurchase for €11 million. Pellegrini arriving could lead to Paredes’ departure as he’s admired by Juve and Milan, but Roma is hoping to withstand all the bids for the lie big midfield players.

Soon, Roma will meet with De Rossi to try to finalise the renewal. But there is more: Di Francesco greatly appreciates Sassuolo defender Acerbi, who has lots of interest from abroad, but would give priority to joining Roma. Not to mention there is also interest in Defrel, who Roma tried for in January.
