Rome transfer market, Zapata and Lukaku: latest striker news

The yellow and red club continues the hunt for a striker to be placed at Mourinho’s disposal

Duvan Zapata and Roma, the white smoke hasn’t arrived yet. And in the meantime, among the latest news and transfer market rumors, the name of Romelu Lukaku appears. The yellow and red club continues the hunt for a striker to be placed at coach José Mourinho’s disposal. At the top of the list remains the name of Zapata. The 31-year-old Colombian striker from Atalanta seems convinced by the Roma hypothesis, but there is no agreement between the two clubs. The Giallorossi would push for a loan with a buy-out subject to certain conditions. According to reports from Sky Sport, the Nerazzurri would like to collect the figure of 10 million with certainty, while Roma would be ready to immediately pay 5 million and distribute the other 5 as bonuses.

Furthermore, a possible substitute is also evaluated in Bergamo. At Rome, in these hours, the name of Romelu Lukaku is being approached. The Chelsea center forward, out of the blues’ technical project, has been reported on Juventus’ radar for weeks. The negotiation that was supposed to bring Dusan Vlahovic to London did not take off and Lukaku, who has always ruled out the possibility of moving to Saudi Arabia so far, could look for another Italian solution in the last portion of the transfer market.
