Reports: Roma closely tracking Spurs’ Chiriches

There could be a familiar name thrown around during the winter transfer market: Roma are, reportedly, turning their attention to Tottenham Hotspurs defender Vlad Chiricheș.

Chiricheș, who was closely scouted by Walter Sabatini before being pipped by Spurs’ Franco Baldini, has played sparingly this season with the English club. Roma will, according to and La Gazzetta dello Sport , propose a loan with an option to make the move permanent for €8 million. It remains to be seen if the English club will accept the deal as Pietro Chiodi, the player’s agent, has in recent days denied that a move away from White Hart Lane is in the works.
