Roma pressing for Nzonzi


Il Messaggero have reported that Monchi has stayed an extra day in Spain in order to make one last attempt for Steven Nzonzi as he will return to Italy later today. The French mediano is trying to force Sevilla’s hand in order to leave the club this summer, as confirmed by the words of the Andalusian club’s sporting director, Caparros. Roma has set a budget for the French midfielder worth just over €25 million, including bonuses. Monchi is expected today at Trigoria where he will speak with Di Francesco, who awaits a positive signal even though he is aware of the uncertain outcome of the arm wrestling between the player and Sevilla.
