Italian Serie A club Cagliari have accepted the offer from AS Roma for one of their best players.

Italian international Nicolo Barella is undoubtedly one of the best players at Cagliari and he has been linked with a move to several clubs in the past months including West London giants Chelsea.

The accepted offer from AS Roma was confirmed by Cagliari president Tomaso Giulini as reported by Sky Sports Italia.

It was revealed that Italian capital club AS Roma have offered €35m plus Gregoire Defrel for Nicolo Barella.

AS Roma will have to fend off the interest of rivals Inter Milan who had earlier made an offer for the same player.

In addition, AS Roma have offered Barella a €3m salary on a yearly basis which is €500,000 more than what the Nerazzuri offered the Italian player.

The Cagliari owner revealed that the Inter Milan offer was made on the 11th of June.

Nicolo Barella was strongly linked with a move to Chelsea during the January transfer window.

The Italian midfielder was linked with Chelsea as a direct replacement for Cesc Fabregas who left the Premier League club for French giants AS Monaco.

Spanish midfielder Fabregas ended his almost five-year stay in West London earlier this year.
