Roma monitoring Lazar Samardzic as Frattesi’s alternative

Roma are being linked with Udinese midfielder Lazar Samardzic.

The Serbian talent is being eyed by several big clubs in Italy after an impressive season in Udine.

The 21-year-old is reportedly among Roma’s preferred alternatives in case their attempt to sign Sassuolo’s Davide Frattesi were to prove unsuccessful.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Giallorossi monitored Samardzic throughout most of last season.

The player is also being tracked by Inter.
