As reported by CalcioMercato on its website, Roma is following in the footsteps of Sven Botman to strengthen its defense for the second part of the season, in a movement that comes hand in hand with José Mourinho's request to make important signings in the market wintry due to the poor quality it has in its wardrobe.
The Portuguese coach, who is beginning to generate doubts in the Italian capital team, wants to incorporate top-level footballers to be able to get into the fight for the Italian Serie A title against Inter Milan, Napoli and AC Milan. The poor results of the UEFA Europa League were the trigger for Mourinho to speak with the board to seek solutions in the next market.
One of the positions that the Portuguese wants to reinforce is the central defense due to the poor performance of most of his pieces, so a couple of names are expected to arrive in January. The names of Nacho Fernández (Real Madrid) and Antonio Rüdiger (Chelsea) are the ones that are ringing the most from the first moment, but now the young Dutch central defender from Lille has joined the list.
