Roma in search of a defender, two footballers on the list of the Giallorosi

Roma have sold Brazilian centre-back Roger Ibanez and are now looking for a new defender.

The Giallorosi managed to sell the player to Al Ahli in Saudi Arabia for 28.5 million euros plus three more bonuses.

But after the departure of Ibanez, another defender must come because at the moment there are only Chris Smalling, Gianluca Mancini, Evan N’Dicka, Marcos Llorente and Marash Kumbulla who will be absent for a few months.

The Italian capital are looking to sign a central defender and manager Thiago Pinto has two names on the list.

Atalanta’s Merih Demiral and RB Salzburg’s Oumar Solet are the defenders on Pinto’s list.

Jose Mourinho has made it clear to the club that they should also get a defender and Roma is in negotiations with the two clubs.

However, the yellow-reds do not want to spend more than 20 million euros for the transfer of Demiral or Solet.
