Roma to meet for Juve pair

Roma are reportedly set to meet Juventus on Tuesday with the intention of agreeing deals for Daniele Rugani and Gonzalo Higuain.

According to Sportitalia and Tuttomercatoweb, Roma could bring in Rugani on a season-long loan with a €20-25m option to buy.

The defender has emerged as the Giallorossi’s first choice to bolster their defence after moves for Toby Alderweireld and Dejan Lovren failed to materialise.

As for Higuain, Tuttomercatoweb specifically writes the Lupi could take the Argentine on loan for €9m with an obligation to buy if they qualify for the Champions League.

The Argentine, however, still needs convincing, given he has made no secret of his desire to stay at Juve.
