Fiorentina, Roma eye Mandragora

Fiorentina have opened talks with Udinese over signing midfielder Rolando Mandragora, whilst Roma are also interested, claims an Italian report.

The 22-year-old has been with the Zebrette since joining from Juventus in the summer of 2018.

Website FirenzeViola.It state that Fiorentina director of sport Daniele Prade has opened official talks with his Udinese counterparts over a deal.

According to the report, the side from north-east Italy would like €20m for the midfielder, with Fiorentina presenting an opening bid of €15m.

A problem may arise in the shape of Mandradora’s former club, Juve.

The Italian champions still hold a right of first refusal on the player, something Fiorentina are looking to eliminate from any potential deal.

Roma are also interested in the midfielder, with the Giallorossi reportedly offering a loan with an obligation to buy in the summer.

However this formula doesn’t satisfy Udinese, and they could lean more towards the Viola’s offer.
