Fabrizio Romano, who works with Sky Sport Italia as a transfer expert, claims that despite their interest, the Premier League side would not be able to pay €55m, which is the Serie A side’s asking price, and they would get out of the race for signing him but Sportitalia’s pundit Gianluigi Longari who is the first person to reveal the interest in the player from Barcelona and Tottenham has insisted that none of the mentioned clubs intend to withdraw the war for the player.
