Roma: Babacar to replace Dzeko?

Roma are reportedly looking to replace Chelsea-bound Edin Dzeko with Fiorentina striker Khouma Babacar.

Acccording to La Nazionale, Roma would like to bring in Babacar on loan with an option to buy in the summer, the 24-year-old having scored five goals in 18 appearances for the Viola this season.

However, the newspaper warns Fiorentina are unconvinced by the idea and would want Gregoire Defrel in return.

The Frenchman joined Roma from Sassuolo last summer, in a deal worth up to €20m, but he has failed to score in 10 appearances for the side and struggled with injuries.
