It’s no secret that one of Roma’s top priorities for the January transfer market is a new right back.

José Mourinho is eager to add depth behind first choice Rick Karsdorp and is evaluating several options, including Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot and Sampdoria’s Bartosz Bereszyński.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the negotiations for Dalot have hit a road block after the Red Devils made it clear they aren’t willing to sell the defender on loan with an option to buy, preferring a permanent deal.

With his contract expiring in 2023, United want to cash in on the Portuguese defender, slapping a €10 million price-tag on the 22 year-old.

As a result, the Giallorossi have turned their attention to Poland international Bereszyński. Sampdoria are open to selling the 29 year-old on loan as long as the operation meets their request of €6 million total.

Roma are pondering two potential strategies to acquire the defender: either offer a loan with option to buy or add a player into the deal.

Samp are reportedly admirers of left back Riccardo Calafiori and midfielder Gonzalo Villar would be happy to accept either in return for Bereszyński.
