Roma and their director Tiago Pinto will use the trip to Leicester City for the first leg of the European Conference League semi-finals to lay the groundwork for some Premier League-related deals. They succeeded in signing Tammy Abraham and Rui Patricio from England last summer, while failing in January with Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
Corresponding Corriere dello Sport, Douglas Luiz is one of their top targets for midfield. He’s highly valued, €35m, but his contract with Aston Villa expires in 2023 Giallorossi has set his sights on him in the past, and several other top teams have him on their radar as well. He has recorded 4 goals and 8 assists in 105 games since joining from Girona in 2019.
The Serie A side also have their sights set on a Manchester United trio. Nemanja Matic was offered to them but management is not fully convinced of him. They haven’t stopped chasing Diogo Dalot while Eric Bailly, who was close to Milan in January, could be an option for defence.
Roma will also try to outsource some underdogs to Premier League clubs. Newcastle inquired about Jordan Veretout in January, most likely set to flee in the summer. Amadou Diawara and Ebrima Darboe also attracted interest from England. The CEO is also looking for solutions for Matias Vina and Eldor Shomurodov, who flopped after the club invested €30m in them. They are more likely to go on loan rather than permanent.
