Roma ponder Kjaer swoop

Wolfsburg's Simon Kjaer could be one of the first players targeted by the new American owners at Roma.

The Giallorossi have high hopes for the future and are expected to make a significant splash in the transfer market this summer.

A top priority for the outfit will be signing a new centre-back given that Philippe Mexes is likely to join Milan on a Bosman.

Amongst the names being mentioned as a replacement for the Frenchman is that of Danish international Kjaer.

The central defender only joined the Bundesliga outfit last July after impressing in Serie A with Palermo.

There is a possibility that he could be on the move again though given Wolfsburg's problems so far this term.

Despite spending heavily to reinforce their squad before 2010-11 kicked-off, Wolfsburg are actually in danger of relegation.

Should they go down then Kjaer could be available for a fee between €8m and €10m, a figure shy of his €13m valuation a year ago.
