Roma are considering a bid for Bologna and Japan international defender Takehiro Tomiyasu, claim reports in Italy.
The 21-year-old only moved to Serie A from Belgian side VV Sint-Truiden last summer for €9m and has made 20 top flight appearances in Italy, providing two assists.
According to Il Tempo newspaper, his tactical versatility has impressed Roma coach Paulo Fonseca.
Tomiyasu can play as a right-back, in central defence or even as a defensive midfielder in front of the back four.
He is very hard-working and has impressive stamina, while at his age he already has 18 senior caps for Japan.
