New Sporting Director Florent Ghisolfi’s Ambitious Plans for AS Roma

Florent Ghisolfi has landed in the capital with a monumental task ahead: to rejuvenate AS Roma. Following a lackluster stint at Nice, the new Sporting Director is already making waves with his market strategies for De Rossi’s team. Key among his plans is the permanent signing of Diego Llorente, valued at €5 million, alongside potential moves for players like Argentine Nicolás Tagliafico from Lyon. Tagliafico could join World Cup winners Paulo Dybala and Leandro Paredes in donning the Giallorossi jersey.

Ghisolfi is also eyeing Mats Hummels on a free transfer, although he faces stiff competition from Juventus for Lille’s German star, Edon Zhegrova. The potential acquisition of Hummels underscores Ghisolfi’s commitment to strengthening Roma’s defensive line.

A major challenge on Ghisolfi’s plate is securing the future of Paulo Dybala. Despite recent rumors, Mourinho has denied any interest from Fenerbahce, but Sky Sport News suggests Dybala might be open to a move to the Premier League. Nonetheless, for now, the Argentine star seems closer to staying with Roma. Dybala, who has been praised by former teammate Franco Vazquez, remains a pivotal figure for the team.

While other Serie A clubs, like the newly crowned champions under President Beppe Marotta, are making significant moves in the transfer market, AS Roma faces its own internal uncertainties. The club’s silence on future plans has left about 100 youth academy staff members, whose contracts are expiring, uncertain about their fate. This situation also affects Maurizio Lombardo, the Chief Football Operating Officer, adding another layer of complexity to Ghisolfi’s mission.
