Roma close in on Veretout & Ismaily

Roma appear to be closing in on deals for Fiorentina midfielder Jordan Veretout and Shakhtar Donetsk left-back Ismaily.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Roma’s meeting with Veretout’s agent Mario Giuffredi went well and the Giallorossi are now favourites to sign the Frenchman.

Gazzetta dello Sport adds the Lupi have ‘upped the ante’ for the 26-year-old, offering him a salary worth €2.5m plus bonuses.

He could soon be joined at the Olimpico by Ismaily, with Tuttomercatoweb writing talks are already under way and that he has already given the green light to a switch.

The Brazilian would reinforce a left flank that risks being deprived of at least one of Aleksandar Kolarov and Luca Pellegrini this summer due to Financial Fair Play.
