Roma midfield casting begins: ex-Leeds midfielder Vurnon Anita has also been proposed to the Giallorossi

The auditions begin today. Roma has started eyeing several free agent profiles to bring to the club following their injury crisis in the midfield. Jack Rodwell and Marcel Buchel have arrived today to begin trials at Trigoria with the Englishman being the early favorite to be chosen. Meanwhile, Corriere dello Sport reports that former Leeds United and Newcastle United midfielder Vurnon Anita has been proposed to Roma sporting director Gianluca Petrachi. The 30 year-old left Leeds in June after having spent last season on loan at Dutch side Wilhelm II.
