Cegniz Under has completed his move.
Mahrez is said to have agreed terms with Roma, but the two sides are still a good bit apart on a fee. I’m not all sold on Mahrez, he has a touch of a one year wonder about him and I think he’s a downgrade on Salah. I’d much rather Berardi over him.
Defrel is also said to be very close to Roma.
Defrel and Mahrez would complete the attack for us this season but I don’t think we’re any better there than the previous season.
Midfield should also be fine if we keep as we are right now. Think we will be slightly stronger here, Pellegrini has more to him than Paredes and Gonalons is a good alternative to De Rossi. Hopefully Gerson will develop too and Florenzi could be pushed back into midfield with the signing of Karsdrop.
Defence is a big worry, we have no fit left back, youngster Luca Pellegrini who impressed in pre season at left back has torn his ACL - the sixth ACL a Roma player has torn in 12 months after Rudiger, Mario Rui, Florenzi (x2) and Emerson, we’ll likely not see Emerson back until the new year either and Florenzi and Karsdrop are also not fit now. We’ve lost Rudiger, could lose Manolas now with Juve meant to be circling in order for him to replace Bonucci. The deal for Nastasic looks to be dead, so a left back and centre half needed at the minimum here and something we can’t really look at cheap options either.
