Serie A transfer latest: Roma open to selling Manchester United reject

Ljajic

All the latest summer transfer news from Serie A...

Roma have already landed Chelsea left back Ashley Cole as well as midfielders Seydou Keita and Salih Ucan from Valencia and Fenerbahce, and Rudi Garcia's side have been linked with a whole host of other players as the club look to close the gap on Juventus - particularly after Antonio Conte's departure from the Turin giants this evening.

However, in order to create room for prospective new signings, some players may have to leave the Stadio Olimpico, and one of those could be former Manchester United reject Adem Ljajic. The Serbian international signed for United in 2009, only to see the deal cancelled by the Red Devils. He went on to star with Fiorentina in Serie A, but struggled to replace Erik Lamela in the Roma side - and now could be sold on in order to make room for Andriy Yarmolenko from Dynamo Kiev.

Milan have also been busy by bringing in Paris Saint-Germain duo Alex and Jeremy Menez, but after seeing a deal to sign Genoa's Sime Vrsajlko collapse - which would've seen right back Mattia De Sciglio move to left back - the club are now looking to sign a natural left back and leave De Sciglio on the right hand side, and that player is believed to be Zenit St. Petersburg's Domenico Criscito, who says he's flatted by interest from Pippo Inzaghi's side.

“Is it the moment to come back to Italy? I don’t know, but I am certainly very flattered by Milan’s interest,” he said. “I don’t know what Zenit’s position is, as you’d need to ask my agent what the club thinks. What I do know is that they consider me an important player.”

San Siro neighbours Inter Milan have long been linked with a move to sign Cardiff City midfielder Gary Medel, and now it finally seems that the Chilean international will secure a move to Walter Mazzarri's men. There is still some work to do on the transfer fee as the clubs are €2m apart in their valuations, but a deal is drawing ever closer.
