Some good news today that David Rozehnal, who will be in duty for the Czech Republic in Euro 2008, is attracting attention from clubs other than just Lazio.
David Rozehnal – at least 3 Italian clubs now interested in the player
David was on loan to Rome club Lazio from the end of January, and although he lost his place in the side he played the last several games for the Rome club, and by all reports played very well indeed. Lazio will have the first choice to sign Rozehnal, presumably for around Â£2.8M.
But news today that other Italian clubs are interested in the player, with Serie A clubs Genoa and Siena both reported to be interested.
Both clubs are said to be getting bids together, and as long as we can recoup the Â£2.8M we paid PSG for the 6’3″ defender last summer, then we feel Newcastle will be happy to let the player move on.
David had some trouble with the physical nature of the game in England and we think Italy (or Spain) is much better suited to his type of play, becasue he is a good player.
He played 21 times for Newcastle last season, and has so far represented the Czech Republic 42 times, and is their current first choice center-back.
