Why Roma Want Adnan Januzaj After Liverpool’s Shaqiri Snub

Xerdan Shaqiri

Italian capital club AS Roma have turned their attention to former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj who is on the payroll of Spanish La Liga side Real Sociedad.

AS Roma are looking for a replacement for wide midfielder Nicolo Zaniolo who will miss several months after a serious knee injury.

Zaniolo is also a big doubt for the 2020 European Championships later this year as a result of the big injury which he sustained during the league game at home to Italian champions Juventus last week Sunday.

His injury marred the game which saw Juventus return to the Italian Serie A summit after several weeks in second position behind fellow title challengers Inter Milan.

Juventus beat AS Roma 2-1 in front of their fans to make it four straight league wins.

Roma had two immediate options for Zaniolo’s replacements but they have been rebuffed in their quest to sign one of the two options.

AC Milan winger Suso and Liverpool star Xerdan Shaqiri were the options for AS Roma.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp categorically said that Shaqiri is not for sale.

Roma have turned their tentacles to Adnan Januzaj who has scored four goals in 12 appearances for his Spanish club.

He’s available on loan with the option of a permanent transfer for £12.7m.
