Cagliari agree Defrel terms

Cagliari have agreed terms with Roma to sign striker Gregoire Defrel for €12m, with Diego Farias heading to Lecce instead.

The 28-year-old forward was purchased from Sassuolo in 2017 for a total €20m, but sent out on loan to Sampdoria in 2018-19.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Cagliari have worked out a €12m deal with Roma and they are just waiting for Defrel to give the all-clear.

In turn, the Sardinians are ready to send striker Farias to newly-promoted Lecce following his loan spell at Empoli.

PSG join Barella battle too

Le10sport.com report that the Ligue 1 champions have offered €50m for the Italy international, as they have missed out on several transfer targets, such as Napoli midfielder Allan, Lyon man Tanguy Ndombele and Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

Roma rival Inter for Barella?

Roma have reportedly offered €35m plus Gregoire Defrel or Gerson for Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella.

According to L’Unione Sarda, the Giallorossi are serious about landing the 22-year-old, despite him having his heart set on a move to Inter.

The newspaper explains the Isolani like Roma’s proposal but that Barella’s preference to join the Nerazzurri makes a deal difficult, given his agent has already agreed personal terms with Beppe Marotta.

Roma's Barella offer rebuffed

Roma had also made a strong offer for Nicolò Barella, claim Sky Sport Italia, but the Cagliari midfielder has his heart set on Inter.

It is well known that the Nerazzurri are in advanced negotiations with the Sardinians over the €50m-rated Italy international.

'Inter's Barella offer unsatisfactory'

Cagliari President Tommaso Giulini confirmed Inter’s offer for Nicolò Barella “is not satisfactory” and other clubs are interested in the midfielder.

There are reports of a proposal worth €35m plus a player in exchange, but so far the two clubs have been unable to agree on who to include in the deal.

“There are many clubs who want Barella, as he had five extraordinary years here, plus on loan at Como,” Giulini told Sky Sport Italia.

Roma & Cagliari in striker swap?

Cagliari have reportedly offered top goalscorer Leonardo Pavoletti in exchange for surplus Roma striker Gregoire Defrel.

According to Il Tempo, Cagliari are in ‘pole position’ to sign Defrel ahead of Atalanta and Bologna.

The 27-year-old scored 12 goals for Sampdoria last season, but he is on the market as the Blucerchiati will not take up their €12.75m option to buy.

The newspaper adds the Sardinians are so keen to bring in the Frenchman that they are prepared to give up Pavoletti.

Defrel: 'Samp continue like this'

The former Roma and Sassuolo man pounced on a Gianluigi Donnarumma howler just 33 seconds in and that proved the only goal at Marassi.

“It was a great Samp performance, especially in the first half, while we held out well until the end against a strong Milan side,” the striker told DAZN.
