For January, the primary reinforcement indicated by Jose Mourinho is Denis Zakaria of Borussia Mönchengladbach.
The Swiss international has been the Giallorossi’s preferred target to strengthen the midfield ever since fellow countryman Granit Xhaka’s transfer collapsed earlier in the summer.
According to calciomercato.it, General Manager Tiago Pinto will hold new talks with Zakaria’s entourage in the coming days.
Roma want to secure his services already for January with an offer of around €5-6 million, and beat the competition as several clubs are interested in the 24-year-old midfielder.
Juventus are reportedly also in the race for the player, as well as numerous Premier League sides.
