Taison-Roma: the updates


The name of Shakhtar Donetsk attacker Taison is one that has been linked in recent days to the Giallorossi. The player has also been sending “signals” on his Instagram account and event as far as to say “I’m coming!” to Juan Jesus. Despite the signs, the Brazilian is a name that does not excite Roma.

As learned by RomaPress, there has been contact in recent days between Roma and the entourage of Taison, including his agent Diego Dornelles, however, it seems difficult that a deal could close before the end of the transfer window on Friday. Di Francesco prefers a name on the right wing who plays with the left foot: a profile that Taison does not fit. Furthermore, Taison is 30 years old and will turn 31 in January as Monchi prefers a younger name.
