Roma agree Defrel deal?

Roma have reportedly agreed a deal in the region of €20m to sign Sassuolo striker Gregoire Defrel.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, Roma will initially sign Defrel on loan, before buying him outright for €20m plus bonuses.

It comes after a successful round of talks between the Giallorossi and Sassuolo on Tuesday.

Gazzetta dello Sport adds the fee is €23m when bonuses are taken into account, while the Frenchman will sign a contract worth €1.5m a season.

He would then join up with his new teammates in the US for the first time, either on Wednesday or the day after.

Defrel, 26, scored 16 goals in 38 appearances for the Neroverdi last term, including 12 in Serie A.
