Roma find Dzeko successors?

Roma have reportedly identified Richarlison and Sebastian Driussi as the strikers to succeed Edin Dzeko.

According to Il Messaggero, Roma are aware of Dzeko’s advancing years, given he turned 31 in March, and will try to sign another centre forward this summer.

One of the two names that interest the Giallorossi are Richarlison, a 20-year-old who plays for Fluminense and represents Brazil at Under-20 level.

However, the newspaper is adamant that sporting director Monchi prefers the second name, that of River Plate’s Driussi.

The 21-year-old’s agent appeared to suggest he was Roma-bound, but Lokomotiv Moscow are reportedly ready to pay his €15m release clause.
