Roma have been very active in the transfer market and they’re pushing to make another acquisition.

The club secured deals for defender Ainsley Maitland-Niles and midfielder Sergio Oliveira earlier this month and might add another before the market closes next week.

According to French outlet Foot Mercato, the Giallorossi are keeping tabs on out-of-favor Manchester United central defender Eric Bailly.

The Ivorian international has played only 500 minutes this season and wants to find a new club where he can play a bigger role.

Milan are also interested in the defender and recently opened negotiations with the Red Devils regarding a potential loan deal. However, talks have stalled due to disagreements over who will pay the defender’s wages.

The Rossoneri are desperate to obtain a new central defender after losing captain Simon Kjaer for the season. In addition, fellow first-choice defender Fikayo Tomori has struggled with injuries throughout the campaign.
