Roma have reportedly contacted Rodrigo de Paul’s agent, hoping to convince the Udinese playmaker to move to the Olimpico.
Tele Radio Stereo claims the Giallorossi are in talks with De Paul’s representatives, hoping to beat Leeds United to the chase.
The Argentine reportedly rejected a move to Zenit St Petersburg because he wants to stay in Serie A and Roma could offer him an opportunity in the Italian capital.
The report underlines that Leeds remain in pole position, but Roma are prepared to offer him an alternative in Italy.
Fiorentina are linked with the 26-year-old too and Udinese have been asking for €40m for the attacking midfielder, who has contributed 25 goals and 25 assists during his time at the Dacia Arena.
