Roma have lined up Juventus defender Mattia De Sciglio as Rick Karsdorp’s replacement at the Olimpico, but the Dutch full-back has reportedly decided against a move to Genoa.
Karsdorp has been linked with a move to the Grifoni in recent weeks, but Sky Sport Italia reports he has decided he wants to remain in the Italian capital.
Genoa have agreed a loan deal with an option to buy for €7m with Roma, but the Dutchman’s change of heart halts the operation.
The reports underlines De Sciglio’s proposed move from the Old Lady to the Giallorossi is also on stand-by because of Karsdorp’s unwillingness to move.
Roma have reached an agreement with the Old Lady over De Sciglio but will not sign the former Milan full-back unless Karsdorp moves this summer.
SportItalia journalist Alfredo Pedulla claims De Sciglio has accepted a move to La Lupa.
