Roma are eyeing up options to reinforce their midfield.
According to Corriere dello Sport, a meeting took place at Trigoria two days ago between Barella’s agent and Roma representatives.
Nicolo Barella’s agent also represents current Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan and the relationship between the club and agent is positive.
While a deal in January is very difficult, especially given Cagliari have just renewed his contract, Roma think they can agree to a deal to bring the young Sardo to Rome in July.
Barella, a Cagliari youth product, has been a hot item on the market as Italy’s giants have all expressed interest in acquiring the midfielder. The young midfielder has been a star player under Diego Lopez for Cagliari this season, making 18 appearances for the Sardi.
