Lugano in Roma link

Fenerbahce stopper Diego Lugano is being suggested as a possible Philippe Mexes replacement at Roma next season.

Mexes is expected to quit the Stadio Olimpico outfit in the summer on a free transfer once his contract expires.

Milan, and also Inter, are thought to be front runners in the chase to sign the former Auxerre defender.

Replacing Mexes will thus be a top priority in the capital and Lugano, a tough Uruguayan international, is a possible target.

The 30-year-old is well regarded in Europe and he's been linked with city rivals Lazio and Premiership outfit Tottenham in the recent past.
