The Giallorossi are already working to reinforce the midfield – an area Mourinho’s team have struggled with all year long – and add depth to the roster.
One of the names that is picking up steam is that of Sassuolo regista Maxime Lopez, reports Corriere dello Sport.
The capital club have reportedly carried forward several conversations with the Neroverdi regarding the French player.
Roma and José Mourinho appreciate the you f midfielder and are considering advancing an offer in the summer.
According to the Italian newspaper, Sassuolo want around €15 million for the 24–year-old.
Inter are also interested in Lopez, but Roma are considered favourites in the race thanks to their excellent relationship with Sassuolo, which also involves Davide Frattesi’s future – player whose resale value is owned in part (30%) by the Giallorossi.
