AS Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has instructed the team’s General Manager, Tiago Pinto, to look into the possibility of signing of Ivory Coast forward, Wilfried Zaha, after he was proposed to the Giallorossi as being potentially available by his agents.
It is believed, however, that the Europa Conference League winners would have to sell before they could buy Zaha from Crystal Palace in the English Premier League (EPL).
Following Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s departure to join Inter on a free transfer, Roma have been looking for a versatile forward who can play in many different positions across the frontline.
Zaha, 29, fits that profile, having played on both flanks and centrally during a career at Palace that has seen him rack up over 150 combined goals and assists since his debut in 2010.
One major stumbling block for Roma to acquire the former Manchester United man could come in the form of wage demands, with Serie A clubs having struggled to match the sums paid by EPL sides in recent years.
