The Corriere dello Sport claims Roma could ask Paris Saint-Germain to loan them Javier Pastore for the second half of the season.
Pastore’s future in the French capital is in some doubt given that he’s not assured of regular first team football.
The Argentine midfielder has been used in just seven League games this term and one Champions League tie.
Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini knows the 24-year-old well – as he was responsible for Palermo’s signing of him in 2009 – and he could make a January move for the South American.
Pastore was sold to PSG two years later for a fee in the region of €40m.
Sabatini is also watching Verona’s Juan Iturbe – on loan from Porto – and Boca Juniors youngster Leandro Paredes.
