Roma may sell Leandro Paredes to Milan or Juventus in order to sign Amadou Diawara or Youri Tielemans.
The 22-year-old did well in the Giallorossi's preseason, but he may end up being sacrificed by the club as they pursue other priorities.
According to La Repubblica, the team from the capital may be able to strike a deal with either Milan or Juventus and sell the player for €15m.
The influx of cash would help them pursue one of their more urgent targets, such as Bologna's Diawara or Anderlecht's Tielemans.
