Agent: Roma like Barreca, but…

Antonio Barreca’s agent claims Roma “like” the left-back, but “there hasn’t been any recent contact” between them and Torino.

Roma are in the market for a left-back, with Emerson Palmieri currently recovering from damaged knee ligaments, and Marcello Bonetto suggested Barreca could be an option for the Giallorossi.

“I know Roma like the player, Ialso talked a while ago with [Roma director Federico] Balzaretti,” the representative told

“However, there hasn’t been any recent contact. For now, the lad is on holiday and right now it’s fair that he rests and is calm.

“Still, Roma are one of the most important teams in Europe and if here was any interest, it would certainly be taken into account.

“The lad, however, has a contract with Torino, so the two clubs must first talk about it.”
