Report: Monchi eyeing Dortmund’s Weigl


After having lost his starting place to Thomas Delaney and Axel Witsel, German midfielder Julian Weigl of Borussia Dortmund has, according to Bild, become a January target for Roma in January.

Reportedly, the Giallorossi are eyeing an 18 month loan deal for the 23 year old in January as the club are looking to bring in reinforcements for Eusebio Di Franesco. With few options to play in the defensive midfield role of Di Francesco’s 4-2-3-1 formation, Monchi could potentially make a move for the German, who has a contract that runs until 2021 and has been previously linked with PSG, Manchester City and Chelsea.
