Roma continue to expand the list of names they are willing to consider to further reinforce Daniele De Rossi’s squad ahead of next season.

With the season having come to an end, De Rossi and his staff met with Roma’s management to hold initial discussions regarding the transfer plans.

From these talks emerged the need for additional pacy wingers that would fit De Rossi’s preferred 4-3-3 system.

Thus, calciomercato.it reports that among the players mentioned by De Rossi as a good fit is Sassuolo attacker Armand Lauriente.

Lauriente is coming off an impressive season for the Neroverdi, having collected 37 appearances with 5 goals and 4 assists.

The player is destined to leave the club after they were relegated to Serie B earlier this month.

As reported by the news portal, Sassuolo would be open to the idea of selling the French winger for a sum of €15 million.

The player, however, has also been followed by Juventus – Bianconeri director Cristiano Giuntoli is said to have made inquiries for him a few weeks ago.
