Roma have joined Milan in chasing goalkeeper Julio Cesar after QPR were relegated from the Premier League.
The Brazilian shot-stopper was a favourite for Inter in Serie A until they opted to part company by mutual consent, terminating his contract early in the summer of 2012.
Julio Cesar is looking for another club now that Queen’s Park Rangers have been relegated, though there are three years left on his £90,000 per week contract.
Milan were originally tipped to make an offer, but Roma have reportedly joined the fray.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Maarten Stekelenburg is still not considered reliable and the Giallorossi are preparing a proposal for Julio Cesar.
