AS Roma ended last season on a positive note with a triumph in the UEFA Europa Conference League. However, Jose Mourinho has looked to refresh his squad ahead of the next season. Jordan Veretout is one player who has been identified as surplus to requirements. Marseille is one of the many clubs interested in signing the Frenchman from the Giallorossi.

The central midfielder is also linked with a move to AC Milan and Tottenham Hotspurs. The Rossoneri reportedly look at Veretout as a possible alternative to Renato Sanches. Whereas, Spurs want to strengthen their midfield options ahead of a crucial season.

Jordan Veretout started his career in France before experiencing life in Premier League with Aston Villa. However, the French midfielder found his feet in Serie A. Fiorentina afforded the player an opportunity to impress which paved the way for a move to AS Roma eventually.

AS Roma is looking to sign Davide Frattesi and Georginio Wijnaldum to strengthen their midfield and offloading Veretout is an important step in that direction.

Jose Mourinho is building a strong team at AS Roma

The Portuguese tactician has made some high-profile summer signings since arriving at the club last summer. Tammy Abraham was signed by the Giallorossi for a massive amount from Chelsea. The Englishman has provided returns for the club in the best possible way by scoring plenty of goals. However, the club still needed to build a squad around him to support their talisman.

The arrival of Paulo Dybala from Juventus on a free transfer is a statement from AS Roma in this regard. The club has managed to lure the star player to Stadio Olimpico for free. The versatile forward is going to be a key player for AS Roma this season. The club will benefit from the signing not only on the pitch but also off the pitch as the forward is a sought-after superstar.

The Argentine will complement Abraham in the attack and will surely be the focal point for AS Roma. However, the Giallorossi has also strengthened in other key areas. Nemanja Matic has joined on a free transfer from Manchester United to provide solidity in midfield. The Serbian will afford defensive stability for Jose Mourinho.

Zeki Celik and Mile Svilar have also arrived in Rome to afford depth in full back and goalkeeping departments. The club has enjoyed a successful transfer window and are still on the hunt. The fans are looking forward to seeing how the squad of AS Roma will shape up at the end of the transfer window!!
