AS Roma hold talks with Real Madrid striker’s agent

According to reports from Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio, Italian giants AS Roma are expected to meet the agent of Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz to discuss the possibilities of a transfer.

Roma lost Stephan El Shaarawy this summer, who joined Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua for €18m. The Italian club are now eyeing Diaz as the man to fill their former striker’s boots at the Stadio Olimpico

This is said to be the second meeting between the player’s agent and the club. Roma are also eyeing a move for Gonzalo Higuain to be their new number nine.

However, the Italians aren’t the only club interested in Mariano Diaz’s signature, with Tottenham also keen on acquiring his services. The English club are viewing the Real Madrid forward as a replacement for their ageing Spanish marksman Fernando Llorente.
