Andy Mattioli

Mourinho’s words in today’s press conference echoed loud and clear: “I do not expect big investments in January.”

However, Roma are continuously linked with new players on the market, particularly for the midfield, a department where Mourinho wants more experience.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Roma are on the tracks of Xeka of French side Lille.

The 27-year-old Portuguese midfielder has drawn interest from the Italian capital, where they consider him a good alternative to the likes of Denis Zakaria or Florian Grillitsch.

Xeka, a towering physical presence in the midfield, could reportedly listen to offers from abroad already in January with his contract set to expire in June 2022.
