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.

Roma sue Inter over Spinazzola?

Roma are considering legal action against Inter for attempting to change the terms of the swap deal between Leonardo Spinazzola and Matteo Politano, it’s reported.

The move collapsed after both players had undergone the standard medicals, as the Nerazzurri requested extra fitness tests for the left-back.

They then asked to change the terms, from loan with obligation to buy at the end of the season, to loan with option to buy.

Inter and Roma blame each other

Matteo Politano and Leonardo Spinazzola have returned to their respective clubs after the swap failed, but Inter and Roma are reportedly furious at each other.

The players had both undergone medicals this week and were meant to exchange places on loan with obligation to buy at the end of the season, as they were valued at €25m.

However, Inter seemed to pull the plug when they demanded extra fitness tests on top of the traditional medical for Spinazzola.

Inter turn to Moses

With Leonardo Spinazzola returning to Roma after a failed swap with Matteo Politano, Inter turn their attention to Chelsea-owned Victor Moses.

The exchange with Politano was seemingly abandoned today after both players had medicals, as the Nerazzurri tried to change the terms of the option to buy and demanded extra fitness tests for the left-back.
