Roma line up for Joao Pedro

Roma are reportedly queuing up to try and tempt Cagliari forward Joao Pedro away from Sardinia.

The Brazilian stepped up in the absence of Leonardo Pavoletti this term and has attracted a lot of attention with his performances during the first half of Serie A 2019-20.

The 28-year-old has scored 16 times in the League to ease the weight carried by the injured striker and according to Il Corriere dello Sport, are hoping to lure the Rossoblu star to the mainland.

The newspaper claims Chelsea are interested, but the Giallorossi have set their sights on the former Estoril man and will join the chase.

Joao Pedro is contracted to Cagliari until June 2023 and the Casteddu are allegedly not prepared to let the player leave without a fight.
