In Francesco: Defrel and the New Left Back Roma
Eusebio Di Francesco gives assurance that Gregoire Defrel will soon be a Roma player and reveals his club is looking for a new left-back.
The reports appear that Roma have agreed to be worth 20 million euros for Defrel, and Di Francesco admits the striker is another step towards the Giallorossi.
“About Defrel, I can say in a minute, but it’s still not official,” he said.
“I read a lot about it, we want to improve the quality of our squad and I want to create competition within the team.
“I think he is an alternative to Dzeko and he can play the wing position. I am very happy if he comes.
“Left-back? Hector Moreno has been brought in, knowing that he can play in the middle and left.
“But we still need a left back because of Luca Pellegrini’s injury and we are looking for a solution in the transfer market, but at the moment Juan Jesus can play there.”
