After failing to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League, Italian Serie A side, AS Roma are set to undergo some changes to their current squad, with some of their players set to depart and the club powerless to stop them, especially for Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala.

More Details

For Lukaku, he’s expected to return back to Chelsea after spending the previous season on loan and the EPL side is expected to sell him or even loan him again. For former Juventus Star, Dybala, his exit may be linked to the failure to qualify for the UCL.

He has a €12m release clause valid for clubs outside Italy and €20m for clubs in Italy and the World Cup winner has now come out to reveal where he would like to play his football next. The Roma star has revealed his ambition to have a stint in the Premier League at some point in the future, with his Serie A future currently in doubt.

Dybala’s current deal at Roma runs out next summer and he hasn’t renewed his deal with the Giallorossi, while being a key player for them since joining under the tutelage of Jose Mourinho. Rumours have swirled around about Dybala’s future potentially lying away from Roma and he spoke about what the future holds for him in an interview with The Athletic.

While he spoke about a host of things, he also revealed his admiration and ambition for the Premier League and the La Liga. He said: “It’d be hard to leave, but of course you always have the curiosity and wonder how you’d do in leagues as good as La Liga and the Premier League, where there are great teams and great players.”

He also spoke about the summer of 2019, when Manchester United and Tottenham were interested in him but the moves never went through. “That summer, I remember there was an approach from Manchester United as well as Tottenham but it was more Manchester because Juve wanted to make that move.” He further said:

“It was the season Juve appointed (Maurizio) Sarri, so I spoke to him to find out if he really didn’t want me on the team. After our chat, my intention was to stay. I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to stay because I was happy (in Turin). That was my best year.” He further added.

So far this season, Dybala has scored 13 times and has nine assists to his name, while also scoring twice and assisting once in the UEFA Europa League for the Giallorossi, despite suffering from occasional injuries and knocks.

Meanwhile…

The future of Arthur Melo is a subject Juventus has to address again at the end of this season as the midfielder ends his loan spell at Fiorentina. The Brazilian has been a misfit at the Allianz Stadium for the last three seasons, but Juventus is willing to cut its losses on his signature and allow him to leave.

The Bianconeri have been pleased with his resurgence on loan at Fiorentina, but it does not seem like La Viola will pay the required fee to keep him permanently. This means Juventus will welcome him back to their squad in the summer and have to find a new home for him.

However, some teams seem to be showing interest in his signature, with a report on Tuttomercatoweb claiming Napoli might make a move for the Brazilian.If they sort out their managerial situation and the new coach agrees to work with the ex-Barcelona man, they might sign Arthur.

The report adds that he also has interest from some Premier League clubs who could make their interest official. The Bianconeri may even decide to keep him, if their expected new manager, Thiago Motta agrees to assess him and he could be an important asset, especially with French midfielder, Adrien Rabiot set to leave the club in the summer.
