Mattia De Sciglio close to joining Roma from Juventus

Juventus full-back Mattia De Sciglio is closing in on a move to Roma, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The two clubs have an agreement and Roma must now discuss personal terms with the Italy international.

If De Sciglio, 27, accepts personal terms with Roma he will move from Turin to the capital.

Juventus remain keen on Roma striker Edin Dzeko, particularly with their pursuit of Luis Suarez now at an end.

Any deal for Dzeko will most likely be separate from the De Sciglio transfer.

If they fail to sign Dzeko, Juve will make an approach for Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud, Di Marzio reports.

Roma are becoming very busy in the market and are on the verge of signing highly-rated defender Marash Kumbulla from Verona.

Kumbulla will give a final answer to Roma by tomorrow morning and if he accepts the move, he’ll join on loan with an obligation to buy for €30m.

The Giallorossi have also had a €25m bid accepted by Napoli for striker Arkadiusz Milik, but the Pole has yet to accept the move.

Milik’s decision will have a big impact on Juventus’ pursuit of Dzeko, as he would be a direct replacement.

And despite talks again failing, Roma still have some hope that Chris Smalling will return before the transfer window shuts.
