‘Inter make Asamoah feel important’

Inter make Kwadwo Asamoah feel more important than he did at Juventus, claims the player’s agent.

The Ghana international joined the Nerazzurri on a free transfer from the Old Lady this summer, having made only 19 Serie A appearances for the Turin club last season.

And Federico Pastorello insists his client feels much more a part of Luciano Spalletti’s plans than he ever did under Max Allegri.

Malcom chooses Roma

French sports newspaper L’Équipe confirms Bordeaux winger Malcom wants to join Roma rather than Everton.

Inter had struck a deal with the 21-year-old earlier this summer, but his club wouldn’t accept a loan with option to buy, and that appears dead in the water.

After selling Alisson to Liverpool for €72.5m, the Giallorossi moved quickly to try and do a deal for the Brazilian winger.

Roma haggle over Malcom

Roma are reportedly on the verge of a deal for Malcom, with only discussions over the timing of payments to be resolved with Bordeaux.

According to this morning’s Gazzetta Sportiva, an agreement has been reached for €35m plus €2.5m in bonuses.

Malcom is ready to sign a five year contract worth €2.5m per season, and all that remains to be worked out is the structure of the deal.

Malcom accepts Roma

It’s believed that Malcom has accepted a move to Roma, so now they must work out a deal with Bordeaux.

The Brazilian winger agreed a deal with Inter some time ago, but the Nerazzurri’s offer of an expensive loan with an option to buy didn’t convince his club.

Everton were then believed to be close to signing him, but Alisson’s €72.5m move to Liverpool changed everything.

With that money in hand, the Giallorossi launched a move for Malcom, meeting with his entourage last night.
