Roma approach Piccini

Roma are ready to offer €10m plus another €5m in bonuses for Sporting CP right-back Cristiano Piccini, claims O Jogo.

The Portuguese paper points to a return to Italy for 25-year-old Piccini, who has spent much of his career abroad.

Born in Florence, he came up through the Fiorentina academy and had loan spells at Livorno and Spezia.

He moved to Spain with Real Betis in 2014, then on to Sporting last summer for just under €3m.

Piccini made 40 competitive appearances for the Portuguese club this season, providing three assists.
