With several defections in the defensive sector, Roma are looking to recruit a defender at all costs this winter mercato. Several options are being considered, but the solution could lie with a Belgian defender. Romelu Lukaku is expected to play a facilitating role.
Although Roma tried the Bonucci option this winter, the fierce controversy voiced by fans on social networking sites dampened their spirits. As a result, they decided to explore other avenues. The name of Arthur Theate is now in the headlines. The 23-year-old Belgian defender has played 20 games and scored one goal for Stade Rennais this season. This has certainly attracted the attention of the Giallorossi. The club wants to take advantage of the friendship between the defender and Romelu Lukaku to try and attract him. However, the Italian capital club is considering a straight loan deal and has only 1.5 million euros to spend.
