Roma have been linked with a move for Manchester United winger Memphis Depay, accordng to Calciomercato.it.
The report suggests the Serie A club will try to convince United to let the Dutchman leave Old Trafford on loan.
Wolfsburg have also been linked with a bid after their disastrous start to the Bundesliga campaign, but Italian media outlet Calciomercato claims Roma are leading the race for Depay’s signature.
Ex-Chelsea flop Mohamed Salah is set to depart for the African Cup of Nations in January, and Luciano Spalletti is desperate to land a short-term replacement.
Depay has the same agent as Roma’s Dutch stars Kevin Strootman and Thomas Vermaelen, and a loan deal is also United’s preference after they shelled out £25million on him in 2015.
