Bologna and Italian international forward Simeone Verdi’s agent has denied any contact from Roma and Inter. Verdi, who joined Bologna from Milan
in 2016 for €1.5m, has been rumoured to be scouted by Napoli and West Ham too.
Verdi’s agent Donato Orgnoni denied all these links in a recent interview with RomaNews.eu.
Orgnoni told : “Roma are looking for him? There’s been nothing up till now. I’ve never spoken to Monchi.
“It’s an interest that we’ve only read about in the papers.
“So far, Roma haven’t tried anything.”
“Nothing is moving at the moment with Napoli, the player is thinking about the current season with the Felsineo [Bologna].
“I don’t think anything will happen in January. We’ve not officially received any offers or been in contact with anyone, not even with Inter.
“The player is happy where he is, we renewed our deal at the end of last season and we’re now tied to Bologna until 2021.”

4. “Inter join Manchester City and Juventus in Atletico star chase”
Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez has gone through a strange transformation in Atletico Madrid. Once termed as the perfect successor of Diego Godin, he has lost
his place in Atletico squad due to his problems with Diego Simeone. Manchester City and Juventus have been tracking the 22-year-old Uruguayan international from a
long time. Now, according to FCInterNews Inter Milan have joined the race too. Inter’s owners have already approved the approach. Gimenez, who is thought to have
signed a contract extension until 2021, has a €60m release clause which could proved to be a stumbling block unless Atletico agree to a cut-price deal.

5. “Tottenham may finally land Barkley”
According to The Telegraph, Tottenham will finally lodge an offer to sign Ross Barkley from Everton after lots of speculations in the summer. Tottenham kept a close eye on the 23-year-old English international midfielder but opted not to make any official bid due to Barkley’s hamstring injury. Although Levy is known to extend negotiations
until the dying moments to make the most out of any deal, Vincent Wanyama’s long-term injury might force him to move for Barkley as quickly as possible.
