The names for the January transfer window keep piling on, with Roma being continuously linked with new names given the club’s emergency in the midfield.
According to Corriere dello Sport, despite Zakaria being the priority for the Giallorossi, Tiago Pinto is also keeping his interest in Nahitan Nandez alive.
The Cagliari midfielder was close to joining Inter in the summer window, but talks between clubs collapsed at the last minute.
Three months later and Nandez is still intent on finding a new team to join.
Roma are pursuing him as an alternative to Zakaria given his adaptability on the pitch.
Other teams, including Napoli and Inter, are also getting ready to swoop in with an offer for the Uruguayan international.
Cagliari’s asking price was initially rumored to be €35 million, but the player’s agent has been reportedly pressuring the club to lower their demands come January.
