Roma are reportedly in talks to sign Spanish defender Diego Llorente on a permanent basis from Leeds United.

The capital club are said to be extremely satisfied with Llorente’s output this season: the Spaniard helped the Giallorossi fill the gap left by Chris Smalling’s extensive absence.

As a result, Yorkshire Evening Post claims that Roma will try to reach an agreement with Leeds United – Llorente’s parent club – before the end of the season.

Leeds’ estimated pricetag of the ex-Real Sociedad man is reportedly of around €8 million.
