Roma have reportedly turned their attentions to signing Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele following negotiations with Steven N’Zonzi.
The Giallorossi have been heavily linked with a move for Sevilla’s N’Zonzi as they look to bolster their midfield options.
However, Corriere dello Sport reports that negotiations with the France international may have broken down.
According to the Italian daily, the 29-year-old’s wage demands are too high for sporting director Monchi to agree to.
N’Zonzi is said to want €4m-a-year in order to accept a move to the Italian capital.
But with Roma unwilling to offer that amount, Monchi has reportedly turned his attention to other targets.
And Corriere believes that 21-year-old Ndombele has emerged as the Giallorossi’s new number one midfield target.
He is thought to be available for a fee of around €25m.
