Roma are ready to step up their interest in Newcastle midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
Despite only joining last summer for £14.5m from PSV Eindhoven, the 25-year-old is likely to leave St. James’ Park this summer after the club was relegated to the Championship.
As talkSPORT told you on Monday, Roma are interested in the Dutchman and believe he can be lured to Italy.
And now, according to Leggo, the Italian club are ready to make their move for Wijnaldum after selling Miralem Pjanic.
The Bosnian has joined Juventus for over £20m and Roma are to reinvest the money on two new midfielders.
The first of those is expected to be Real Madrid star Mateo Kovacic, while they are also looking to tie up a deal for Wijnaldum.
