Following their decision not to recruit Leonardo Bonucci, Roma are still looking for a new defender, and have set their sights on Trevoh Chalobah of Chelsea.
The Giallorossi have faced a number of injuries this campaign, severely limiting José Mourinho’s options on the pitch, and the upcoming African Cup of Nations will have a further impact on the club’s squad, with Evan Ndicka ready to take off. Roma have recently been strongly linked with Bonucci’s transfer, and have held negotiations with the Union Berlin defender’s entourage, but fans of the Italian capital have made it clear that they don’t want to see the veteran in yellow and red given his history with Juventus. La Gazzetta dello Sport details how Roma plan to loan Chalobah, aware that he will be a cheaper option than their other target Thilo Kehrer.
