Giallorossi hope to bring in another Italian international.
Roma have begun their search for a Pablo Osvaldo replacement, with speculation in Italy suggesting that Genoa ace Alberto Gilardino is on their radar.
The Giallorossi will receive €17m from Osvaldo’s switch to Southampton, and it is believed that they will move immediately to bring in a new striker before the new season.
However, they are unlikely to spend a significant amount of money given that the reason behind selling the 27-year-old was in order to balance the books.
As a result, Genoa and Italy ace Gilardino has emerged as a primary target as Mattia Destro continues his recovery from injury.
It is reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport that the capital club hope to agree on an exchange deal which will see Marco Borriello move in the opposite direction.
However, the pink paper also suggest that there is still interest in Juventus striker Alessandro Matri who has yet to complete his expected move to Napoli.
It is likely to be a busy fortnight for director of sport Walter Sabatini, who is set to open talks with Francesco Totti over a new deal, while the future of Erik Lamela remains in doubt.
It was believed that if Osvaldo was sold then the club could afford to keep Lamela and offer him improved terms. However, Gazzetta have reported that offers will be evaluated for both the Argentinian starlet and Miralem Pjanic until the end of the transfer window.
