Roma have reportedly met with Suso’s agent, as they see the Milan man as a potential alternative to Malcom.
The Giallorossi had agreed a deal with Bordeaux to sign Malcom, but Barcelona stepped in at the last minute to hijack the transfer.
Sporting director Monchi is still looking for someone to play on the right flank, and calciomercato.com reports that he mess Suso’s agent Alessandro Lucci today.
The Spaniard has a release clause of €38m, but it’s only valid for foreign clubs and expired on July 15.
The Rossoneri are asking for around €40m, but at this sage Roma are only making enquiries and aren’t ready to submit a bid.
Alternatives include Leon Bailey of Bayer Leverkusen, Ajax’s David Neres, Mikel Oyarzabal of Real Sociedad, RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg and Domenico Berardi, the Sassuolo forward who worked with Eusebio Di Francesco at Mapei Stadium.
