Roma ask after Januzaj

Liverpool don’t want to loan Xherdan Shaqiri, so Roma are turning to Adnan Januzaj from Real Sociedad, claim Sportitalia.

Coach Paulo Fonseca confirmed in today’s press conference that they are no longer pursuing Matteo Politano after Inter pulled the plug on an exchange with Leonardo Spinazzola.

They still desperately need a replacement for injured Nicolò Zaniolo, who is out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL and meniscus.

Suso and Shaqiri were the first choices, but Milan and Liverpool are refusing to allow a loan with option to buy.

According to Sportitalia, Roma have now made contact with Real Sociedad forward Januzaj and he could be picked up on loan with option to buy for a total €15m.

The Belgium international will turn 25 next month, so is still young, despite not yet achieving the heights that were expected of him at Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

He was sold to Real Sociedad for €8.5m in the summer of 2017, so far this season managing four goals and as many assists in 13 competitive games.
