Roma reportedly contacted Fiorentina manager Paulo Sousa securing the team in case their current head coach Luciano Spaletti leaves the club.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma officials have already made their move in offering the Italian specialist the Roma job starting from the next summer.
Roma, however, are not the only club interested in Sousa, as Borussia Dortmund are also considering him as their head coach.
Eusebio Di Francesco, Unai Emery, Leonardo Jardim, Roberto Mancini and Vincenzo Montella are the other candidates for Roma job. The club’s current manager Luciano Spaletti is doubtful for the next season as he has been previously linked with Juventus.
