Roma: Benatia out, two defenders in?

Roma are willing to sell Mehdi Benatia for €30m and have already lined up a series of potential replacements.

The Morocco international has been constantly linked with a move away from Stadio Olimpico, with Chelsea and Barcelona the two sides most heavily rumoured to be interested in his services.

And Corriere dello Sport have revealed on Sunday that the Giallorossi are willing to let their star defender leave, but only for a fee of €30m.

If any club does come in with that amount, the capital outfit will reinvest that money in one, or maybe two, central defenders.

Toby Alderweireld of Atletico Madrid is top of that list, with Parma’s Gabriel Paletta, Dejan Lovren of Southampton and Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen also of interest.
