Barcelona right-back Aleix Vidal is in talks with Roma over a possible move in the January window, according to the player’s agent Graziano Battistini.

Vidal has been linked with an exit for some time now and it sounds like he fancies a move to Serie A.

“Roma are Roma and Vidal would be willing to take an eventual offer from Roma into serious consideration,” he said.

”Contact with Monchi has continued and we are in the initial stages of what could become negotiations.

”We’re not yet in serious talks, but if the Roma sporting director really wants him, we’re ready to listen.”

The move would be a good play for Roma who look set to lose left-back Emerson Palmieri to Chelsea.

The transfer would also likely be welcomed by Vidal who has struggled to make a consistent dent at Barcelona.

The move to Roma would be a chance for a fresh start and consistent playing time for the 28-year-old.
