Roma now see Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek as an option for the ongoing summer transfer window.
Corriere dello Sport have reported today that while Roma are already looking at Denis Zakaria and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa as options for deeper midfield, Loftus-Cheek has also emerged as a potential target with about a week to go for the window to end.
Jose Mourinho, who gave the Englishman his debut during his stay at Chelsea, wants to reunite with the midfielder this summer. The Blues are willing to let him leave on an initial loan with the option to buy permanently for €16 million.
The Friedkins would want Mourinho to work with another attacking midfielder in Loftus-Cheek too. Another option for deeper midfield is Miralem Pjanic, who does want to return to the Olimpico but his salary demands make it impossible for Roma to sign him.
