Roma’s priority for the midfield remains Georginio Wijnaldum. However, the capital club continue to eye former Fiorentina midfielder Lucas Torreira who is looking to leave Arsenal permanently in this transfer window.
The Uruguayan player recently proposed himself to the Giallorossi and his entourage have held opening talks with Roma.
According to calciomercato.it, Roma contacted the player on Thursday to assess the situation.
Torreira’s contract with the Gunners is set to expire next year, and his exit could be granted with an offer of around €10 million.
First, however, the capital club must secure a sale with Jordan Veretout, Amadou Diawara and Gonzalo Villar deemed the favorites to leave Roma in the coming weeks.
