Tottenham, Newcastle monitor Roma’s Roger Ibanez

Andy Mattioli

Roma centreback Roger Ibanez continues to draw interest in the Premier League given his steady growth over the last two seasons which recently resulted in his national team debut with Brazil.

According to Italian journalist Francesco Balzani, Ibanez is being closely monitored by Tottenham and Newcastle United: both teams had made inquiries for him last summer, but Roma never opened to the idea of selling him at that point in time.

Both Premier League sides are expected to renew talks for Ibanez. However, negotiations will be complicated as the ex-Atalanta defender holds a €80 million release clause which Roma are not planning to lower or eliminate anytime soon.
