Though Keita Balde was a relative success in his first season at Monaco, it’s looking increasingly likely that he’s not going to stick around in Ligue 1.
Inter are looking to wrap up a €25 million deal for the former Lazio winger, who scored eight times for Monaco last season after they had shelled out €32m for his services.
Monaco are likely to include a buyback clause for the 23-year-old as well as ask for a loan fee for the first season.
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.”
