Roma close on Benatia and Rafael

Roma don’t have a new Coach, but they are active on the market with reports Mehdi Benatia and Rafael are on the way.

The Giallorossi are still looking for a replacement on the bench, as Interim Manager Aurelio Andreazzoli will not be confirmed after taking over from Zdenek Zeman in February.

Sky Sport Italia report they have surpassed Napoli in the race for Udinese defender Benatia, snapping up the Moroccan international for €10m.

Meanwhile, Roma are also said to be close to Santos goalkeeper Rafael, which frees Maarten Stekelenburg to join Fulham.

Dutch international Stekelenburg is expected to put pen to paper at Craven Cottage by Tuesday.
