Florian Grillitsch offered to Roma

With the Serie A opening in sight, Roma look to reinforce the midfield with the rumoured exits of either Amadou Diawara or Gonzalo Villar.

After their first official clash in the Conference League on Thursday, Roma and manager José Mourinho continue to identify the weak link in the midfield. The pivot of Veretout and Cristante is not enough for the Special One going forward.

Thus, several names have been linked with the capital club including Torreira, Zakaria and Anguissa.

This time around, Corriere dello Sport reports that Florian Grillitsch of Hoffenhaim has been offered to Roma through various intermediaries.

The 26-year-old Austrian can cover numerous positions. Originally a defensive midfielder, he fan also slot in as a center-back.

Despite costing less than the likes of Zakaria, around €12 million, the profile does not fit Mourinho’s demands.

Roma will continue pushing toward the exit door one between Diawara and Villar. Only then will it be possible to bring in an additional midfielder for José Mourinho.
