Roma is in negotiations over an agreement to exchange Alexis Sanchez for Inter Milan’s Edin Dzeko.
After the former Manchester City striker, 34, fell out with manager Paulo Fonseca, Dzeko’s Roma future is in doubt.
It is known that Roma initiated contact with Inter, who in August, after a year on loan, signed Sanchez from Manchester United on a three-year contract.
Just twice this season has the 32-year-old scored, and boss Antonio Conte is open to the transfer.
For the Serie A championship in Italy, both clubs are still in contention. As the campaign hits its halfway stage, Inter is second, two points behind leaders AC Milan, and Roma third.
