Olsen to Replace Alisson

After Alisson’s sale to Liverpool, it’s no secret that the Giallorossi need a direct replacement for the Brazilian. According to the most recent reports, FC Copenhagen’s Robin Olsen appears to be Monchi’s top target. The Sweden international, who was a major protagonist in his country advancing to the quarterfinals in Russia, is said to be valued by his club at €17 million. However, it’s reported that Roma want to spend in the €10-12 million range.

It’s believed that Monchi wants to replaced Alisson on the cheap to reinvest the majority of the profit from the Brazilian on a winger. Roma could have trouble getting a keeper at a cut rate with clubs knowing that Roma are flush with case and in need of a keeper. Apparently, Roma has set a weekend deadline with the Danish side on an Olsen deal to try and push it through at a cut rate. If this fails then Roma will likely turn back to PSG’s Alphonse Areola.

Malcom a Top Target

It’s being reported that Roma will look to invest a large sum of money from the Alisson sale money on the wing. The name en vogue currently is 21 year-old Brazilian winger Malcom of Bordeaux. Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that Roma are looking to reach an agreement with the French side after already reaching an economic agreement with the player.

Roma will have to beat English side Everton to the punch though. Di Marzio is reporting that Everton have already offered €40 million with bonuses included. Meanwhile, Roma have offered €35 million including bonuses. They’re hoping that the will of the player will help them pull off the move. It’s said that Bordeaux could give an answer in the next 24-48 hours. Meanwhile, Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that if a move for Malcom fails then they could look to Berardi, Chiesa, or Suso.
