As Arsenal, Fiorentina and Roma tussle over Julio Cesar, the Giallorossi consider Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves instead.
The Brazilian international shot-stopper is suddenly hot property on the transfer market after a good season at QPR.
English media claim Julio Cesar is now very close to a deal with Arsenal, though Italian papers continue to suggest Fiorentina are making big strides forward for the ex-Inter star.
Roma are being left behind and, according to Il Messaggero, turn their attention towards a new target.
Diego Alves would be available from Valencia for approximately €6m, an affordable figure for the Giallorossi.
Another of Roma’s goalkeeping targets is Rafael, but the Santos goalie appears to be on the verge of a move to Napoli.
