AS Roma have come to an agreement with West Ham United winger Sofiane Feghouli over personal terms, but now they need to convince the Premier League side to lower their loan demands. Feghouli only joined West Ham in the summer from Valencia, but has hardly figured in Slaven Bilic’s side.
Il Messaggero have today reported Feghouli has agreed to join Roma after the Serie A side offered him a salary of €2m. Roma are keen to bring in an attacker in this transfer window and have been linked with players from other Premier League clubs.
However, despite Feghouli coming to an agreement over his personal terms Roma are not prepared to pay what West Ham want for the initial loan spell. Roma are struggling with regards to FFP and they would like the Hammers to reduce this.
It’s also been calmed if Feghouli does join Roma on loan the Italian side want a right of redemption on the Algerian, said to be in the region of €9m.
West Ham have been criticised for the transfer business they did during the summer window. Simone Zaza has returned to Juventus this month after failing to make an impact whilst Gokhan Tore has been ruled out for the season.
