Roma tracking River Plate midfielder

Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims on his official website that Roma are tracking River Plate midfielder Carlos Carbonero.

Reportedly, Roma will meet with the entourage of the Colombian midfielder, who has characteristics similar to Alessandro Florenzi, on Tuesday. Roma will have to fend off the competition of Racing Club for the signature of the player, who does not have an EU passport and would take up a non-EU spot on the Giallorossi’s roster – making the operation complicated.
