Roma still searching for a vice-Dzeko

After completing a deal for Cengiz Ünder, Monchi still has his eyes towards the transfer market.

La Repubblica have reported that Roma are still looking for an alternative to Edin Dzeko in attack and there are two names the Giallorossi are eyeing; River Plate’s Lucas Alario, who Monchi tried to bring to Sevilla last season, and Atletico Madrid’s Luciano Vietto.

Alario is 24 and this could be his last chance to answer the call of European football while Vietto was proposed directly to Roma on loan: both players even have Italian passports.
