Roma look resigned to losing Mattia Destro, as they have offered €16m for Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano.
The Italy international has been heavily linked with a switch away from Stadio Olimpico this summer, with Wolfsburg and Tottenham thought to be interested.
And Gazzetta dello Sport believe that the capital club are putting the wheels in motion to replace Destro by tabling a bid for the Brazilian striker.
The Ukrainian outfit are thought to be reticent to sell the goalscorer, but privately admit that they would not stand in the way of the 27-year-old.
The crisis in Crimea could see a number of their players leave during this window, with Douglas Costa currently rumoured to be on Milan’s radar.
