Mert Cetin targeted by Lecce

Lecce are reportedly continuing their hunt for new players in January and have allegedly contacted Roma to sort out a loan deal for Mert Cetin.

The defender might be available after the arrival of Roger Ibanez from Atalanta and Fabio Liverani would, according to Alfredo Pedulla, welcome the centre-back to Puglia.

The SportItalia journalist writes that Roma also are thinking on parting ways with Juan Jesus, but that Lecce are looking to get a loan bid accepted for Cetin.

The report claims that the team from Puglia are looking to use their good relationship with Roma’s sporting director Gianluca Petrachi to make sure Cetin could arrive at the Via del Mare before the window shuts on Friday.
