Bovo to fill Mexes role?

Palermo's Cesare Bovo is being suggested as a possible replacement for Philippe Mexes at Roma.

The Frenchman has left the Stadio Olimpico outfit after joining Italian champions Milan on a Bosman transfer.

Bovo is subsequently being mentioned as a target, but his agent admits that it is dependant on who the capital club appoint as Coach.

"Who they get as boss matters," Franco Zavaglia told Radio Radio. "If it is [former Palermo tactician] Delio Rossi then yes Bovo may arrive.

"There are several outfits who are following Bovo, but it is Palermo who must make the decision on his future.

"If the President [Maurizio Zamparini] were to get an important offer for him then he would probably consider it.

"Cesare has been in Palermo for three of four years and he still has two years left on his present contract.

"However, it is only natural that the ambition of almost every player is to play in teams fighting for the top positions and playing in Europe."
