Spalletti wants Witsel for Roma

Luciano Spalletti sets his eyes on Zenit St Petersburg's Axel Witsel to reinforce Roma, while renewing the technical staff.

The Tuscan Coach seems set to bring along people he's familiar with for his second spell with the Giallorossi.

According to ItaSportPress, Spalletti's dream is Zenit's Witsel, who was a long-term target for Milan. The player and the Coach already worked together and this would be a reunion, but Witsel would cost President James Pallotta €25m.

Furthermore, Spalletti took along several names that he already worked with before to compose his technical staff, including Marco Domenichini, Franco Baldini, and Alessandro Pane.

The 56-year-old is also bringing back Aurelio Andreazzoli, who was his assistant back when they both worked at Roma, and who served as interim Coach after the dismissal of Zdenek Zeman in the 2013-14 season.
