Roma failed to agree an obligation to buy for Patrik Schick, so are reportedly offering him to RB Leipzig on a dry loan instead.
The striker is still heading to Germany and agreed personal terms with the Bundesliga outfit.
However, Sky Sport Italia claim the original negotiations for a €5m one-season loan and option to buy for a further €20m, becoming an obligation if he hit a certain number of games, hit problems.
As the transfer deadline is tomorrow, Roma don’t want to risk being stuck with the Czech forward and are instead discussing a dry loan – meaning without an option to buy.
Roma already have his replacement lined up in the form of Atletico Madrid striker Nikola Kalinic.
