So he writes Tuttosport: "The Nerazzurri will take a midfielder and a striker in January, while for the role of external they will assess Asamoah's physical condition, even though Darmian is on pole to reinforce the externals. Florenzi, however, could represent the classic low-cost joker as a midfielder. It is true, Conte would like a more physical element – even if the favorite, Vidal, is not a cuirassier -, but Florenzi is a player who knows Serie A very well, is ready to use, has technical and tactical skills in addition to – given don't underestimate – an important international experience, with 34 national appearances and 40 European cup competitions.
Florenzi with Conte's Italy played from outside in 3-5-2, but also from midfielder (5 appearances) and has those raid skills that go well with the Salento coach's football ideas. And, as mentioned, it could be that opportunity that Marotta was talking about, given that Rome could also sell it with a right of redemption. As long as Inter and Roma do not make an exchange: in fact, it could interest Politano to the Giallorossi, especially if Perotti should be sold in January, another element that does not seem to fit into Fonseca's plans".
