Given Roma’s emergency in the midfield, with Jose Mourinho stressing the importance of a strong defensive presence in the middle of the pitch, the Giallorossi continue being linked with new names on the market ahead of the January window.

According to Il Romanista, General Manager Tiago Pinto has been monitoring Lucas Tousart of Hertha Berlin.

The 24-year-old French midfielder, who joined the German side in 2019 from Olympique Lyonnais, has recently lost his place among the starting eleven and may consider moving elsewhere in January.

His agent, Philippe Fiorentino, is reportedly testing the waters and looking for potential suitors. His current price-tag is estimated at around €12 million. Hertha Berlin would only consider sending him on loan with obligation to buy in June.
