Zapata to Atalanta approaches Defrel to Sampdoria


Duvan Zapata has moved from Sampdoria to Atalanta for €26 million. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, this operation could mean Gregoire Defrel leaves Roma for the Genovese club.

Roma have many attackers and Defrel’s transfer is probable, considering that in the last season the French player scored just one goal in 20 appearances. He arrived from Sassuolo to Di Francesco’s side for about €23 million. The only problem are the player’s wages, which could prove too high. The next days are going to be really important to understand if the two teams could start a negotiation.
