Roma lawyer Antonio Conte has revealed the club tried to sign West Ham winger Valon Behrami on transfer deadline day.
The 25-year-old was linked with an return to Italian football after failing to make the expected impact at West Ham since joining the club from Lazio two years ago.
“(Roma’s) President Rosella Sensi and other executives tried to sign Behrami yesterday,” Conte told Centro Suono Sport.
“(Roma sporting director Daniele) Prade tried until the end but there were problems of time as well as some missed assignments that were required for Roma to conclude the deal.”
Cesena chairman Igor Campedelli has admitted that they also tried to sign the Switzerland international.
“We wanted the player because our coach (Massimo Ficcadenti) knows him well,” Campedelli told calciomercato.it.
“He said no because he had already given his word to bigger clubs.”
