Walter Sabatini said Roma’s biggest transfer “is still to come” after Edin Dzeko and Mohamed Salah.
This evening the Giallorossi confirmed Alessio Romagnoli will move to Milan for a reported €25m plus €5m bonuses.
The director of sport also commented on the other activity, as Dzeko’s transfer from Manchester City will be completed once Antonio Sanabria goes to Sporting Gijon, freeing up a non-EU place.
“Dzeko is a great player, but I hope Roma’s best transfer is still to come. I am happy Roma made this move.
“Is the market closed? No. We are pushing hard and making the effort to make the squad competitive.”
Lucas Digne is widely expected to arrive for a medical over the next few days from PSG.
Salah scored on his debut against Valencia, though Fiorentina are still furious at Chelsea for releasing him.
“We did not speak to Fiorentina, because they were not part of negotiations, Chelsea were.”
