The three instances are distinct from one another, but they may cause the Serie A trio, who are competing for a berth in Europe this season, just as much difficulty. Fiorentina is five points from a Conference League position, a goal they achieved last year, while Roma and Inter are vying for a Champions League spot. On the day before the deadline, Barcelona made a last-minute bid to the Tuscans for Amrabat, indicating their willingness to sign the midfielder on a loan with the option to purchase.
Fiorentina, on the other hand, was unwilling to sell, especially at Barcelona's prices, and the player was insistent on going to Camp Nou. The Zaniolo controversy has affected Roma for more than a week. Less than two weeks ago, the footballer asked to go after getting offers from Milan and Bournemouth.
