Roma and Inter eye Brahimi

Inter and Roma are keeping a close eye on FC Porto winger Yacine Brahimi, who is available for €25-30m.

This season, the 28-year-old contributed 12 goals and 10 assists in 49 competitive appearances.

The price-tag is believed to be in the region of €25-30m.

Sky: Napoli step up for Meret

Napoli have increased their offer for Udinese goalkeeper Alex Meret to €25m plus €10m in various bonuses, according to Sky Sport Italia.

While RAI Sport and Onda Cero claimed today that they were close to an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain for Alphonse Areola at €20m plus bonuses, there are differing rumours elsewhere.

Gianluca Di Marzio said that Napoli stepped up negotiations with Udinese this evening and have set their sights firmly on Meret.

The 21-year-old has only 13 Serie A appearances, but the offer on the table is now €25m plus €10m in performance-related bonuses.

The debate now is in terms of bonuses, as Udinese want them to be fairly simple to achieve, whereas Napoli hope they’ll be tougher.

Done deal: Pastore to Roma

Roma finalised their agreement with Paris Saint-Germain today and will sign Javier Pastore for €20m plus €4m in bonuses.

According to Sky Sport Italia and other sources, the details of the operation were worked out this evening.

He is expected to undergo a medical at the Villa Stuart clinic in Rome either tomorrow or Saturday.

The Argentina international is the replacement for Radja Nainggolan, who will go to Inter for €24m cash, plus Davide Santon and youth team player Nicolò Zaniolo.

It is a return to Serie A for Pastore, who made the first big splash of his career at Palermo.

He was sold to Paris Saint-Germain for €42m in the summer of 2011.

Pastore just turned 29 yesterday and his contract at the Parc des Princes was due to expire in June 2019.

Done deal: Nainggolan to Inter

Radja Nainggolan is on his way to Inter for a total of €38m, as Roma will receive €24m cash plus Davide Santon and Nicolò Zaniolo.

According to multiple sources, including Sky Sport Italia, the deal is now done and could be completed by the end of the week.

Nainggolan gets to reunite with his former Giallorossi Coach Luciano Spalletti.

Roma already have his replacement lined up, with a deal worth €20m plus €4m bonuses for Paris Saint-Germain creative midfielder Javier Pastore.

The breakthrough came yesterday, when versatile former Newcastle United defender Santon was included in the transfer.

Youth team trequartista Zaniolo, a key figure in Inter’s very successful Primavera side, was always part of the negotiation.

Santon key to Nainggolan move

Inter have agreed to sign Radja Nainggolan for €24m, youth team player Nicolò Zaniolo and full-back Davide Santon, it’s reported.

The negotiations for Nainggolan to reunite with former Giallorossi Coach Luciano Spalletti at San Siro are no secret.

The main issue has been which players will be included as part of the exchange deal to lower the €40-45m asking price.

Primavera youth team creative midfielder Zaniolo has been in there since the start, but a new addition is full-back Santon.

According to Il Tempo, Sportitalia and Sky Sport Italia, the two clubs have agreed to include the versatile 27-year-old as part of the deal.

His representatives will meet with Roma tomorrow to discuss personal terms.

Santon came up through the Inter youth academy and returned in 2015 for €3.7m after four years at Newcastle United.

He can play on the right or left of defence, and even as a centre-back if needed.

Roma already have Nainggolan’s replacement lined up, as Javier Pastore is expected in the Capital for a medical tomorrow or Friday.

The Argentina international will arrive from Paris Saint-Germain for €18-20m.
