Roma are considering making an offer for Super Eagles forward Kelechi Iheanacho if they fail to sign Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham.
Abraham is currently weighing up his Stamford Bridge future after the Serie A side agreed a £34m deal to sign the striker.
The 23-year-old has asked for time to consider the offer from the Italian club, who are managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, with Roma general manager Tiago Pinto meeting Abraham for talks in London on Thursday.
However, should Roma turn their attention to Iheanacho, any move is likely to command a large fee as the player signed a new three-year Leicester City contract in April.
Fellow Serie A side Atalanta and Arsenal are also interested in Abraham, but Chelsea’s preference is to sell him to a foreign club, making a move to their London rivals less likely.
A source close to the negotiations has told Sky Sports News there is a determination from Roma to conclude a deal and talks are ongoing.
