Roma in talks over 28 million euros deal for Dennis Praet
Roma are showing strong interest in Dennis Praet.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Roma are set to sign Sampdoria midfielder Dennis Praet.
The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Belgium international was signed by Sampdoria in August 2016 from Anderlecht for a fee of 10 million euros. The 24-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.
Praet has played 68 times for Sampdoria since signing from Anderlecht, scoring two goals and creating four assists in that time.
The 24-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Belgium.
Dennis Praet has represented Belgium at Under-15, Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 50 caps and scoring seven goals, before making his senior international debut in November 2014. As a member of Belgium national football team, Praet won one cap.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Roma.
Roma sporting director Monchi wants to sign a new midfielder and Dennis Praet is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Italian ginats have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Roma will be desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Praet has the talent to play many roles in midfield.
According to Football Italia, “Roma are progressing rapidly in their negotiations for Sampdoria midfielder Dennis Praet with a €28m offer, it’s reported. The Belgium international just turned 24 and has been in Serie A for two seasons. He is also of interest to the likes of Juventus, Inter, Everton and West Ham United. However, according to Genoa-based Primo Canale, Praet would prefer Roma and the talks have kicked up a few gears over the last few days.”
