Roma still tracking Basa, but there’s also Chiriches

Corriere dello Sport has reported this afternoon that Roma are still tracking Marko Basa, a player liked by Roma’s Rudi Garcia.

Garcia knows Basa quite well after having managed the Montenegrin while at Lille. There are problems standing in the way for Basa: he would take up Roma’s final non-EU spot and is likely only to arrive if Mehdi Benatia is sold. An alternative to Basa is Tottenham’s Vlad Chiriches, who Roma were after last summer before the young Romanian signed with the English club.
