Roma ask after Januzaj

Liverpool don’t want to loan Xherdan Shaqiri, so Roma are turning to Adnan Januzaj from Real Sociedad, claim Sportitalia.

Coach Paulo Fonseca confirmed in today’s press conference that they are no longer pursuing Matteo Politano after Inter pulled the plug on an exchange with Leonardo Spinazzola.

They still desperately need a replacement for injured Nicolò Zaniolo, who is out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL and meniscus.

Under and Jesus part of Suso plan

Milan are continuing to pursue Roma forward Cengiz Under and could even take Juan Jesus as part of a package deal with Suso plus cash, it's reported.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Giallorossi value the Turkey international far higher than the Spanish winger, so have not accepted a straight swap.

Instead, they could attempt a bigger negotiation that would see Suso plus cash move to Roma in exchange for Cengiz Under and defender Juan Jesus.

Ideal XI of the season so far

At the midway mark of the Serie A campaign, Tommaso Adami picks the 11 players who have truly stood out in their roles. Who makes your ideal XI?

SAMIR HANDANOVIC (Inter) - Goalkeeper

Now at his eighth season at the club, Inter's captain is once again among the top-performing goalkeepers in Italy. At 35 years of age, he has already managed to keep seven clean sheets, earning his team the title of best defence in the league. His best saves so far must be the fingertips on Joaquin Correa's finesse shot in a tight 1-0 win over Lazio and the crucial penalty save in last week's Inter 1-1 Atalanta.

ROBIN GOSENS (Atalanta) - Right-back

Milan baulk at Olmo demands

Milan are only prepared to pay €20m for Dani Olmo, claim reports, whereas Dinamo Zagreb and his agents are requesting a much higher sum, so a different club is leading the race.

Dinamo Zagreb coach Nenad Bjelica confirmed today that Olmo would not play in a friendly because “we all know a transfer is being discussed. We don’t want to risk anything on behalf of the club.”

Roma ask Liverpool for Shaqiri

Roma have asked Liverpool for Xherdan Shaqiri on loan with option to buy, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The Swiss international had been a candidate before the deal with Inter for Matteo Politano, but the exchange with Leonardo Spinazzola has now collapsed acrimoniously.

The Giallorossi still need a replacement for injured Nicolò Zaniolo and their next target seems to be Shaqiri.

Valencia join Suso race

Valencia have joined Roma, Getafe and Atletico Madrid in asking after Milan winger Suso, claim Marca, after he requested a January transfer.

A move to 4-4-2 has effectively pushed him out of the starting XI and his relationship with many of the fans is poor, as seen when he was jeered coming off the bench during a midweek Coppa Italia victory against SPAL.

Suso has reportedly asked to move on and Milan are more than willing to sell, so they can reinvest in other areas of the team.

Rakitic swap for Bernardeschi?

Reports in Spain and Italy suggest Juventus could try to bring Ivan Rakitic from Barcelona in exchange for Federico Bernardeschi.

The proposal had already been suggested over the summer, but never came to fruition.

Now La Repubblica newspaper, Calciomercato.com, Fichajes.net and Calciomercato.it are pushing the revival of this idea for the January transfer window.

Both players are struggling for time due to their tactical positions and would relish a new lease of life elsewhere.
