Roma turn their focus to Nzonzi


Il Tempo (Menghi): The countdown is over, the Premier League market has closed, as Nzonzi remains in Sevilla and is now in the thoughts of Roma. Everton and Arsenal have not been able to close the deal that Monchi has been working on since Malcom faded. Now they are hours of waiting and reflection, also because the gong of the English transfer, while it did leave an opportunity open for Roma, also closed a possibility: Gonalons did not fly to England, where West Ham were most interested in him. The Frenchman refused all the offers received (following him were also Crystal Palace, Everton and Marseille) in order to stay in the Capital. At the moment, the possibility of Torino remains in the background because at Trigoria they have not received any official offer from the Granata for the player, but it is not excluded that there could be developments this weekend. Now we enter the decisive phase for Nzonzi, who could lower his wage demands in order to leave Sevilla this summer and Roma, in this case, will try to take advantage of it. But the Giallorossi are working on another track, the alternative is Samassekou of Salzburg. The ’96 class is negotiating a contract renewal with the Austrian club and in the case of non-renewal, the situation could change despite Salzburg’s sporting director insisting there is no scenario where they sell the Mali international.
