Il Messaggero newspaper claims if Monchi leaves Roma, he’ll be replaced by former Milan director of sport Massimiliano Mirabelli.
There have been repeated reports of clubs trying to poach ex-Sevilla transfer guru, including Arsenal and Manchester United.
According to the Rome-based newspaper, if Monchi does walk away, the Giallorossi are planning to bring in Mirabelli.
The director of sport became famous during his brief spell at Milan, where he worked alongside Marco Fassone under Yonghong Li.
Currently out of work, Mirabelli is still reportedly travelling around Europe to scout players.
