Roma still interested in Sven Botman, Sevilla want him to replace Koundè


Roma remain interested in Lille defender Sven Botman, but competition is mounting for his signature.

After a busy summer reshaping the squad, Roma still want to bring either a new defender or midfielder to the club.

The Dutchman has been tipped to leave the reigning French champions this summer, with several clubs having registered interest in his services.

The Giallorossi were early to express their admiration for the 21 year-old, but discussions never took off.

Wolverhampton and Sevilla have also stepped forward recently to sign Botman, with the former having an offer rebuffed. The Spaniards, meanwhile, are eyeing him to replace Jules Koundè, according to Sky Sports UK.
