Napoli Make €30m Bid for Alessi Romagnoli

RomagnoliNapoli have reportedly increased their offer for Roma 20-year-old defender Alessio Romagnoli to €30m, but the defender wants to move to Milan and not Naples.

The 20-year-old, whose current contract with the Giallorossi is set to expire in June 2018, has become a target of multiple clubs in recent weeks including AC Milan and Arsenal, though it seems like the Partenopei may be the most willing to meet the capital city club’s high asking price for him.

According to La Repubblica, the Partenopei are proposing €28m cash plus another €2m in bonuses. That would add up to the €30m price-tag Roma have placed on the 20-year-old centre-back.

However, the player is determined to leave the Giallorossi only for Milan, where he’d be reunited with ex-Sampdoria Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, who coached him while he was on loan at Sampdoria last season.

The Rossoneri however have not yet met Roma’s price for Romagnoli, with their current offer only being €25m plus €3m in bonuses.

Romagnoli could well be sacrificed to raise funds for Edin Dzeko, as Roma are finding it difficult to sell transfer listed Seydou Doumbia and Mattia Destro.
