Roma look at Sergio Rico

With Real Madrid pushing for Alisson Becker, Roma are looking at PSG’s Alphonse Areola and Sergio Rico of Sevilla.

The Merengues are edging closer to the €80m asking price for Alisson and could eventually agree terms for €60m plus large bonuses.

Monchi is therefore eyeing up alternatives for the Giallorossi goal.

According to Onda Cero, a new name on the list is Sevilla shot-stopper Sergio Rico.

Only 24 years old, he came up through the Sevilla youth academy in his hometown and kept 13 clean sheets in 40 competitive games this season.

Another option is Areola of Paris Saint-Germain, as Roma are already in advanced negotiations with the club for Javier Pastore.

Meanwhile, Udinese’s 21-year-old Alex Meret appears to be out of the running after Sportitalia reported Napoli agreed a deal worth €25m plus bonuses today.
