Podolski agent claims Roma interest

Lukas Podolski's representative has revealed that his client could leave Koln for Roma this summer.

"Lukas wants to try a new experience," Riccardo Sarti told La Signora In Giallorosso on Monday. "He would be an ideal reinforcement for Roma.

"He's quick, precise and excellent technically.

"The Giallorossi certainly like him and for that reason I will soon be meeting with Walter Sabatini."

The latter has been appointed as Roma's new sporting director by American businessman Thomas Di Benedetto, the club's prospective new owner.

The forward will turn 26 on June 4 and has been with his current club since leaving Bayern Munich in 2009.

Valued at €13m, the German international is also liked by clubs such as Arsenal, Juventus and Zenit St Petersburg.
