Pedro is not part of José Mourinho’s plans at Roma, while Tottenham continue to push for Lorenzo Pellegrini but Spurs are not willing to pay his release clause, which expires in ten days.
Sky Sport Italia correspondent Angelo Mangiante reports the former Chelsea winger can leave Roma for free this summer as he is not part of José Mourinho’s plans for 2021-22.
Pedro joined the Giallorossi as a free agent last season and scored six goals in 39 appearances with the Serie A giants.
#Pedro is not part of Mourinho’s technical plans. He will not be part of the new AsRoma.
He has two years contract (€3M season), but it’s like he’s a free agent. Expecting offers from other clubs and hopes to find a new team in the coming days. #Legend #Transfers @SkySport pic.twitter.com/NJ2c0ne0P0

The Spaniard is on a €3m-a-year deal at the Stadio Olimpico and will consider offers in the coming weeks.
Meantime, the Giallorossi are preparing a contract extension offer for Lorenzo Pellegrini, who sees his current deal expire in June 2022.
Calciomercato.com confirms Spurs are interested in signing the 25-year-old who was forced to miss Italy’s UEFA Euro 2020 campaign due to a muscle injury.

According to the report, Roma will discuss a new deal for the Italian midfielder in September and offer him a pay rise, cancelling his €30m release clause, which expires in ten days.
Meantime, Tottenham are trying to reach an agreement with the Giallorossi but are not willing to trigger Pellegrini’s release clause.
The Athletic reported last week that Roma would not accept any bid below €30m for Pellegrini.
