Roma will reportedly talk to Pescara boss Zdenek Zeman at some stage on Monday about becoming the new Coach in the capital.
The Czech is the new favourite to succeed Luis Enrique after the Giallorossi initially made a move for Catania tactician Vincenzo Montella.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Zeman will meet with Roma director general Franco Baldini and sporting director Walter Sabatini later today.
Zeman himself also revealed at the weekend that he would possibly be leaving Pescara despite leading the Serie B club to promotion this season.
The former Foggia boss has already had a spell on the Giallorossi bench in the past. He was signed in 1997 after some time on the Lazio bench, but was replaced by Fabio Capello two years later.
The Gazzetta expects talks to be positive and even claims that Zeman could be confirmed as the club’s new Coach as soon as Wednesday.
