Roma will focus on acquiring a central defender in January

Andy Mattioli

With Ola Solbakken set to become Roma’s primary attacking reinforcement for January, the capital club are considering strengthening other positions in Mourinho’s roster after the World Cup break.

As reported by, the Giallorossi are expected to turn their attention toward signing an additional central defender given Marash Kumbulla’s injury issues and Chris Smalling’s advanced age.

General Manager Tiago Pinto will soon resume contact with various agents across Europe with clients willing to move in the January window.

Roma had prioritized the position earlier in the summer, but Gini Wijnaldum’s unexpected long-term injury forced the club to pursue a suitable replacement for the Dutchman instead.
