Jose Mourinho’s Roma are preparing a move for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette.
Reports as per Corriere della Sera says Tammy Abraham is rejecting a move to Roma with Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette now emerging as a serious alternative.
Roma general manager Tiago Pinto is in the UK for talks with Abraham, but with the Chelsea striker reluctant, Lacazette is now a ‘concrete hypothesis’.
Lacazette has one-year remaining on his Gunners contract and could be available to leave in order to fund Mikel Arteta’s own transfer plans – which ironically could include Abraham himself.
New Roma coach Jose Mourinho is keen to find a new centre-forward with Edin Dzeko on the brink of move to Inter Milan.
