Roma’s new owners have made a right-back their top priority this summer and have pinpointed ’s as a potential target, according to the The People.

Interim boss, Vincenzo Montella, has met up with the clubs new owners to discuss squad strengthening this summer, and it is thought that the side are in pursuit of a top quality right-back.

Roma are willing to offer approximately £6 million for the France international, but could up their bid if unsuccessful. However, they could face stiff competition from domestic rivals Juventus, who are also said to be interested in the defender.

But, with the backing of their new American owners, who are on a mission to make ‘I Giallorossi’ a force once again, Roma are capable of tabling a colossal amount of cash to land the 28-year-old Frenchman this summer.

The Italian outfit will apparently offer Sagna a four-year deal in a bid to lure him to the Stadio Olimpico, whether Arsene is willing to part with his national compatriot is undetermined, as he too will be looking to improve his squad for next season’s campaign.

Would you sell this summer if a substantial offer was tabled?
