Roma are reportedly lining up Lille’s Soufiane Boufal to replace Juan Iturbe in their squad in January.
Iturbe is set to join the Hornets on loan with the option to buy during the winter window, leaving an empty space in the Giallorossi’s roster.
Il Tempo reports today that Moroccan attacking midfielder Boufal is being targeted for the January window.
However, the 22-year-old is also believed to be in the sights of Inter and Tottenham, meaning competition could be fierce.
Boufal has scored five goals in 15 appearances for the Ligue 1 side so far this season.
