Roma have reportedly agreed a deal with Juventus for Gonzalo Higuain – but the striker is dragging his heels.
The two clubs have a good rapport, already swapping Luca Pellegrini and Leonardo Spinazzola.
Now, according to today news, Roma have agreed a €6m season-long loan with Juventus for Higuain, which includes a €27m option to buy.
However, the newspaper warns the proposal has not yet been accepted by the Argentine.
Instead, he is first expected to extend his contract with the Bianconeri until 2023, with his salary dropping to €4.5m.
The 31-year-old has begun preseason with the Old Lady and is known to prefer staying put.
Nonetheless, he is the Giallorossi’s first choice to replace Edin Dzeko if the Bosnian joins Inter.
