Roma are eyeing signing either Arsenal target Steven N’Zonzi or Tottenham Hotspur linked Tanguy Ndombele as they look for a midfield boost.
The Giallorossi have received an influx of funds from selling Alisson to Liverpool in a world record deal for a goalkeeper and recently failed to spend some of the money when they missed out on Malcom, who has joined Barcelona.
According to Italian daily Corriere dello Sport, Roma’s first choice to balance out their midfield is Sevilla’s N’Zonzi.
As such, the second name on their list is that of Lyon schemer Ndombele, a player who is of interest to Tottenham.It is estimated that N’Zonzi would cost Roma around €30m to sign from Sevilla, while Ndombele would be slightly cheaper.
Roma reached the semi-final stage in the Champions League last season and are keen to make sure they improve on their squad strength this summer.
