Roma step forward for Veretout

The Jordan Veretout saga continues, as Roma edge closer by offering cash only to Fiorentina, whereas Milan insist on including Lucas Biglia.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the two clubs keep pushing each other in this race for the French midfielder, who is valued at €25m.

Roma have now gone in front after making their bid a cash only affair.

Fiorentina are adamant they do not want players included in a swap deal, whereas Milan are determined to use Biglia as a way of reducing the cost of the operation.

The Giallorossi are also offering better personal terms to Veretout than Milan.
