Given Smalling’s unstable physical condition and Kumbulla’s early season struggles, Roma are also rumored to be interested in signing an additional center-back in January.
Earlier reports linked the capital club to Marcão, 25-year-old defender of Turkish side Galatasaray.
The player was rumored to have a €10 million price-tag.
According to TMW, however, Roma are not the only ones monitoring the Brazilian.
Inter are also reportedly interested in Marcão.
The Nerazzurri want to add depth to their backline in the January transfer window and may consider formulating a loan offer for the Galatasaray defender.
