Roma have reportedly already agreed personal terms with Houssem Aouar and are now looking at free agents Evan N’Dicka and Youri Tielemans. The Giallorossi won the Conference League last season and are now in the Europa League final against Sevilla, which will be played on May 31 in Budapest.
However, they have signed a very tough settlement agreement with UEFA that runs until 2027, forcing them to cut costs even further to stay within the financial fair play limits. That is why sporting director Tiago Pinto is spending the summer looking for free agents to help strengthen Jose Mourinho’s team. The agents of Eintracht Frankfurt defender N’Dicka posted a photo of themselves with Mourinho at Roma’s training ground earlier this month on Instagram, confirming that negotiations are underway. Now, La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Roma are also in talks with Leicester City midfielder Tielemans, who will be a free agent when his contract expires on June 30. The versatility of the Belgian international is appreciated by the Giallorossi, as he can play in front of the defense or as a more advanced creative midfielder behind the strikers
