Valencia want Roma captain Alessandro Florenzi

Valencia are considering a January transfer of Roma captain Alessandro Florenzi, according to a report from Diario AS.

The 28-year-old has fallen out of favour at Roma this season, with Leonardo Spinazzola displacing him in their back four.

He was given his Serie A debut by Viola boss Vincenzo Montella at the Olimpico in 2011 but may now decide to move on due to a lack of game-time at the club.

It is said by the report that right-back is Valencia’s priority position to upgrade after summer signing Thierry Correia has failed to impress in the position.

Midfielder Daniel Wass has even been deployed there while the club are now pursuing an ambitious plan to lure former defender Joao Cancelo – currently at Manchester City – back to the club.

Gazzetta dello Sport reported in its Monday edition that Florenzi is a target for Los Che and could be available in a €20m deal.
