Italian club enter the battle to sign €40m-rated Chelsea transfer target

Roma interested to sign Juventus centre-back Daniele Rugani and ready to compete with Chelsea for the footballer. Giallorossi need a new high-class defender to strengthen the back-line and Italy international is the best option in this situation. He also wants to get regular game time and ready to change the working place.

Fazio and Marcano already up to 30 and their replacement are necessary. Eusebio Di Francesco will do everything to add him in January when the transfer window opens again. Blues also keen to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player. His price could increase and become much more. Daniele joined the Old Lady from Empoli in 2015 with a £5m deal. He is one of the best centre-backs in Serie A and unchanged figure for the club. Last season Rugani played 30 matches, scored 2 goals and made 2 assists in all competition.

This is an excellent result and he can do much more if he gets a regular place in starting line-up. Italian defender is contracted with the Bianconeri until 2021 and his release clause is around €40m. The 24-year-old footballer also named in national team squad several times which is already a big success for the player.
