Roma is one of those teams that has constantly focused on improving and becoming the best possible team that it can be. The challenge is that you always need consistent talent and that’s where the team is actively focused on right now. They really want to bring in some of the top talent out there and now they do have their eyes on some pretty big names, as you will notice below.
What talent is Roma focused on right now?
There are multiple reports regarding a variety of interesting names that Roma might actually be interested in at this time. For example, one of the names floating around right now is the Lyon midfielder named Houssem Aouar. The Frenchman is 24 years old and he is said to be out of contract with Les Gones this summer. That means he is free to sign a pre-contract with another team. Aside from Roma which has obvious interest on him, Milan and Manchester United also seem to be rather interested in him. If you’re a betting man, you can share you thoughts on this Draftkings review and see whether this type of thing will come to fruition.
However, Roma wants to put him under a pre-contract very soon, just to avoid any competition. With that in mind, the numbers floating around are rather interesting, with the contract pricing being around 2.8 million Euro per year. The only challenge for Roma at this point is that the player does have quite the injury history. So he will need to complete a medical and then Roma will assess whether his current health is going to be suitable for such an investment. It’s great to hear that Roma is interested in this player, because he does have quite the pedigree and it can help the team quite a lot.
Aouar does have quite a lot of fame from Lyon and he did end up scoring 41 goals, along with 36 assists. Needless to say, Roma does want to focus on finding that new talent that will help generate more goals and a better offensive, so he might be a very good option. The player was also linked to Juventus at some point in 2020, but the deal was not finalized.
Other interesting signings
What’s even more interesting is that Roma is also trying to retain talent, aside from acquiring new people. They do want to resign Chris Smalling which is getting closer and closer to a contract renewal. The 33 year old is not in the final year of his current deal. Roma didn’t announce a resign just yet, but everyone is expecting them to resign Smalling.
However, there is some speculation that he might also move to Juventus or Inter. That’s very difficult to know until anything official is shared, but there’s no denying that a lot of teams are interested in Smalling, which is great.
At this time it can be very difficult to know what approach Roma will have when it comes to getting new players or signing older ones. But what we do know is that there will be quite a lot of interesting changes in regards to their roster. With that in mind, it’s interesting to see the rumor mill and how a lot of players are going to switch gears as we move into the new season. Roma, like many other Italian teams are working very hard to try and refresh or update their roster, in an effort to get better results for the upcoming season. That’s why a lot of people are excited to see if any of the signings and resignings will go through!
