Italian sources, including Sky Italia, claim that Suso’s agent met with Roma’s backroom staff at the club’s training ground on Thursday, with a view to a move in the region of €40 million.
However, any move could hinge on making Diego Perotti a makeweight, whose own representative is also thought to have had sit down talks with the Giallorossi.
Perotti was one of Roma’s better players in Serie A last year but in Suso they would be getting a player six years younger – at 24 – and an incredibly versatile option across the front line.
Croatia winger Ante Rebic has decided to extend his stay at Eintracht Frankfurt until the end of the 2021-22 season.
The 24-year-old had been linked with a move to a number of top European clubs, including Eintracht’s Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich and Premier League giants Manchester United.
But Rebic, a stand-out performer during Croatia’s run to the World Cup final, has instead committed to the club he joined permanently only this summer after two seasons on loan from Fiorentina.
Eintracht sports director Fredi Bobic told the club’s official website: “Ante is certainly one of the most positive phenomena of the World Cup, and we do not have to hide the fact that it awakens greed.
“It speaks for Eintracht Frankfurt that we have managed to keep such a strong player, who can certainly be described as a whizz kid.
“Ante was wooed by some of the top clubs and had one or two better overseas offerings, but staying with us shows that he has the eagle in his heart and that we are on the right path with our plans.”
Tottenham became the first Premier League team not to sign a single player over the summer since the transfer window was created in 2003.
Mauricio Pochettino claims that Brexit has made things too costly for a club that has just built a new stadium and training ground. Spurs could now be getting ready for ‘Dexit’ (or Rexit?) as speculation surrounds left-back Danny Rose.
The England defender has long fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham, with Ben Davies now the established option on the left, leading Bundesliga side Schalke to enquire about a loan deal earlier this month.
Though the Premier League deadline has come and gone, there’s still three weeks left in the European transfer window to thrash out a deal – likely on a loan basis.
It does seem unlikely, however. Rose at the very least is a fine back-up and, given that Tottenham have not signed anyone, may need to hold on to him just for homegrown rule purposes.
