Barcelona winger Aleix Vidal is considering a January move to AS Roma, according to his agent.
The Spaniard has struggled for game time this season and the arrival of Philippe Coutinho further threatens his place in the Barca team.
As such, Vidal is open to leaving La Liga in favour of a move to the Serie A, with Roma said to be admirers of the 28-year-old.
“Roma is Roma. Aleix would be very happy to move there," the midfielder's representative Graziano Battistini told Romanews.
"We are waiting for an official offer of the club but I am in talks with [Roma director Ramon Verdejo] Monchi. We are just at the beginning of a negotiations that can turn into a concrete deal.
“We are in talks but at the moment there is nothing concrete. If Monchi really wants him we are ready to listen to him.”
