Roma discuss Batshuayi option

Roma have reportedly asked Chelsea for Michy Batshuayi on loan, interrupting his Valencia spell, if Patrik Schick leaves in January.

The 25-year-old Belgium international has 12 goals in 23 senior caps for his country, but has struggled to replicate that form at club level.

He was picked up from Olympique Marseille for €39m in 2016, then had loan experiences at Borussia Dortmund and Valencia to get more playing time.

However, he is seemingly not content at Valencia and could interrupt that deal six months early.

Official: Murillo joins Barcelona

Former Inter defender Jeison Murillo is officially heading to Barcelona on loan from Valencia with €25m option to buy.

The announcement came from both Liga clubs this evening, but had been in the air for several days.

Murillo underwent a medical and will move on loan until June 2019 for a reported €2m fee.

There is also a confirmed option to buy at the end of the season for €25m.

It’s a remarkable career path for the 26-year-old Colombia international, as Inter sold him to Valencia in August for just €12m.

Batshuayi or Kownacki for Roma?

Roma will reportedly try to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi or Sampdoria’s Dawid Kownacki next month.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma President James Pallotta has already given the green light for Monchi to pursue the pair.

The newspaper goes one step further by stating it is ‘almost certain’ one of them will arrive if Patrik Schick returns to Samp.

Kownacki broke out for the Blucerchiati last season, the 21-year-old coincidentally replacing Schick, but he has not started in Serie A this term and scored just two goals.
