Roma aim for Dzeko return against Napoli?

Roma forward Edin Dzeko has recovered from COVID-19 but could be left out against CFR Cluj, as Paulo Fonseca aims to have him back against Napoli.

Il Corriere dello Sport reports the Bosnia international has returned to training and Fonseca must decide whether to bring him to Romania or give him more time to prepare for a return against the Partenopei in Serie A.

Dzeko has already scored four times at the San Paolo previously and Roma are hoping he will be back in time for the big match on Sunday.

Chris Smalling, Roger Ibanez and Gianluca Mancini are not back in group training today, as the three defenders carries out individual work.

Smalling struggled with a knee problem yesterday and it became clear Ibanez will not travel to Romania for the Europa League tie.
