Is Roma Looking To Dump High Earners?

Roma are looking to offload Diego Perotti, Juan Jesus and potentially Alessandro Florenzi in order to lighten the pressure on their wage bill.

The Corriere dello Sport reports that the Giallorossi want to move on the three players, as they aren’t considered important in coach Paulo Fonseca’s plans.

Juan Jesus started the first game of the season in a 3-3 draw against Genoa, performed poorly and has since lost his place in the side.

Perotti meanwhile has been out with a hamstring injury for most of the season, but since his return he hasn’t contributed with a goal or an assist in six games.

Florenzi has also lost his place in recent weeks, and with the right-back looking to keep his spot in Roberto Mancini’s Italy squad for Euro 2020, he’s seeking a move away, with Inter and Fiorentina linked in recent weeks.

The Corriere reports that getting rid of the three players would save in excess of €10m in terms of wages.
