Iborra to join Monchi at Roma?

Sevilla captain Vicente Iborra has been linked with a move to AS Roma, should sporting director Monchi join the Italian giants.

Monchi has previously named Rome as a favoured destination of his, while media reports in both Italy and Spain have noted Roma are keen to bring him in to replace Walter Sabatini, who left the Stadio Olimpico in October last year.

Now calciomercato.com reports the 29-year-old midfielder would follow his sporting director to the Giallorossi as he would be viewed as a priority signing.

Iborra rejected a move to English side Sunderland last summer and despite signing a new deal until 2020 and being instilled as the club’s captain, the report suggest Los Rojiblancos could be tempted to sell him for a fee between €10m and €12m.

The former Levante midfielder netted the winner in last month’s Seville derby against Real Betis and is currently Sevilla’s longest-serving player, winning a Europa League title in each of his previous three seasons at Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan.
