Roma deny Sergio Rico interest

Roma have denied interest in signing Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico despite reports Alisson Becker could join Real Madrid this summer.

Onda Cero had reported the Italian giants were keen on the Seville-native but Estadio Deportivo contradict such links, stating he was not on the club’s shortlist.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper endured a tough season with Los Rojiblancos and lost his regular starting spot to David Soria in the latter stages of the campaign.

Reports in Spain had also suggested Watford were a leading candidate for the goalkeeper while Arsenal, Milan and Napoli have all also been linked.

Rene Ramos, brother of Real Madrid captain Sergio, is now the representative acting on behalf of Rico, states ABC de Sevilla.
