Roma Director Rules Out Signing a Free Agent Defender

Roma are one short defender after the summer window, but a solution is unlikely to come from the free agent pool. The Gelorossi I considered the options available, but an addition is not forthcoming.

Director Thiago Pinto closed the door on such a possibility dazn before the defeat of Udinese.

I have been clear in my previous notes. Our transfer market is closed. We have to focus completely on the pitch until the end of the World Cup. I am confident that our daily work will help us achieve the results we aim for. I’m tired of rumors. We will be reconsidering the role in January.”

On top of discussing the possibility of adding a defender, the Roma CEO commented on Nicolo Zaniolo, as talks on extending his contract will begin soon.

“We have a great relationship with him and his agent Claudio Figorelli. He had to regain his footing last season. This current will be important to him and us. We have an agreement with his representative, so that journalists can continue to speculate about him. But it will not be a problem for us.”

according to market transferAnd the The Gelorossi Nikola Maksimovic would be at the top of the shortlist if they decide to include a central defender. They were offered Dan Axel Zagadou over the summer, while Jason Denayer and Edgar I were recently shown.

Our position on Roma and not adding a free agent defender

Obviously they could use an extra body in the back, but signing someone just for that doesn’t make sense. Maksimovic showed that there was little left of him in the tank last season. Smaller options will be more acceptable. Zagadou must be in bad shape if it’s still not signed.
