Roma are expected to be busy this summer when the transfer market officially reopens in July.

Transfer chief Tiago Pinto is eyeing several players, however, one of his top priorities is overhauling the Giallorossi’s midfield by replacing the likes of Jordan Veretout, Gonzalo Villar, and Amadou Diawara.

According to L’Equipe, one of the players Roma continue to monitor is 28 year-old Rennes midfielder Benjamin Bourigeaud, a standout in Ligue 1 throughout 2021/22.

The Frenchman totaled 11 goals and 16 assists in 47 appearances in all competitions this season, capturing the attention of several foreign clubs.

Bourigeaud’s contract expires in June 2023 and there’s no hint he’ll sign a new contract with Rennes. As a result, the French side must decide whether or not to sell him this summer or risk losing him for free at the end of next season.
