AS Roma are waiting for a ‘yes’ from Juventus forward Gonzalo Higuain as they look to boost their frontline ahead of next season.
The Argentine forward has been linked with a move away from Turin this summer as he appears to be surplus to requirements at the club.
Roma, on the other hand, are in the market for a striker to replace Edin Dzeko who is expected to join Inter Milan.
Reports suggest that Roma and Juventus have reached an agreement over Higuain in a deal that will see the Argentine move to the Stadio Olimpico on a season-long loan after which the deal will be made permanent.
Therefore, Roma will make an initial payment of €6 million loan fee upfront, and later pay up the remaining €27 million to make the transfer permanent.
However, it all depends on Gonzalo Higuain’s final decision and preference as he will have to sacrifice his current salary and opt for a deal worth €4.5 million per season.
