Andy Mattioli

After announcing the tour of Japan in November on Thursday morning, the capital club are now being linked with a transfer target from Japan.

According to Il Tempo, the Giallorossi recently met with Montedio Yamagata sporting director Daisuke Shibusava to discuss the various events included in the weekly tour which will also aim at further strengthening Roma’s latest partnership with Toyota.

Shibusava was reportedly in the company of emerging Under-21 talent Riku Handa. Handa had taken part in engagements with the Japanese U-21 national team in Italy and used the opportunity to meet with Roma’s management.

These friendly discussions – claims Il Tempo – could soon turn into a concrete transfer possibility.
