With AS Roma on the verge of signing Angeliño from RB Leipzig despite him spending the first half of the season on loan at Galatasaray, Diego Llorente, himself loaned by Leeds United, could be sacrificed.

That’s what Corriere dello Sport hint at on Monday, explaining that with the Spaniard arrival, an exit will likely be needed in Rome.

The newspaper report that the ‘liquidity index’ still needs to be addressed at the Serie A side, and ‘at least one player will leave’ before the end of the transfer window, with the Leeds man on the list.

The names put forward by Corriere are those of Marash Kumbulla, Zeki Celik, Andrea Belotti and Diego Llorente.

The latter is said to ‘have a market’ in the last few days of the transfer window, which will be a heavy hint to previous interest from Paris Saint-Germain in the Leeds United player.

The Ligue 1 side have since signed Lucas Beraldo from São Paulo, but his first performance against Stade Brestois left a lot to be desired, which is why a short-term move for Llorente could still be on the table as the Brazilian finds his feet in France.

That isn’t explicitly stated by Corriere, but it would make sense, especially since Llorente initially arrived in Rome from Leeds at the request of José Mourinho, who is no longer the manager at AS Roma.
