Roma are in negotiations to take Nikola Kalinic from Atletico Madrid, on loan with option to buy, claim Sky Sport Italia.
The former Fiorentina and Milan striker is already 31 years old and on the outskirts of the Atleti project after his €14.5m move last summer.
A new forward is required, as Gregoire Defrel is on the verge of a transfer to Sampdoria, while Patrik Schick is wanted by RB Leipzig and Schalke 04.
