Benfica’s Alex Grimaldo also an option to replace Spinazzola


Roma are considering several options to replace the injured Leonardo Spinazzola, who successfully underwent surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles earlier today in Finland.

The Italian international is expected to miss anywhere between four to eight months, leaving new manager Josè Mourinho shorthanded at left back.

So far, some of the options that the Gialllorossi could make a move for include Inter’s Federico Dimarco, Bologna’s Mitchell Dijks, and Chelsea pair Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso.

The list, though, is growing longer with Roma executive Tiago Pinto considering a name at his former employers, Benfica. Sky Sport reports that the Portuguese giant’s 25 year-old left back, Alex Grimaldo, is viewed as another candidate who could join the capital club.

Although Spinazzola is still considered a central piece to Roma’s project, Riccardo Calafiori remains the only available left back, forcing the club to act on the transfer market.
