Is Sergio Ramos on AS Roma's Radar?

The search for a new defender continues as AS Roma looks to strengthen their squad before the summer transfer window closes. The name Sergio Ramos has emerged as a potential target.

Roma recently parted ways with one of their defenders, Roger Ibanez, who joined Al Ahli during this summer's transfer window. Meanwhile, Marash Kumbulla is expected to return following a knee surgery in January.

Recent reports have suggested that AS Roma is interested in signing Sergio Ramos. But that's not all; Leonardo Bonucci has also been linked to the Giallorossi.

However, sources from the club, as cited by La Gazzetta dello Sport, indicate that neither of these defenders is on Roma's radar.

Sergio Ramos is a free agent after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain was not extended. The former Real Madrid defender is rumored to be attracting interest from Besiktas.

Conversely, Bonucci is no longer in Juventus' plans. Three clubs reportedly in pursuit of him are Lazio, Union Berlin, and Genoa.

Despite this, Gazzetta dello Sport suggests that nothing is impossible for Roma, especially after securing the signing of Romelu Lukaku.

In a nutshell, AS Roma is looking for a new defender before the summer transfer window ends. Although the club sources suggest otherwise, the team has been linked with Sergio Ramos and Leonardo Bonucci. The transfer market is always full of surprises. AS Roma's recent acquisition of Romelu Lukaku demonstrates their determination to strengthen the squad.
