Roma have joined the race to sign Manchester City defender Pablo Zabaleta.
The 26-year-old full back has been linked with a string of clubs across Europe this summer amidst reports of an uncertain future at Eastlands next season.
The Daily Mail reports Luis Enrique, the former Barcelona midfielder and current Roma boss, is hoping to use his relationship with Zabaleta, built up through their time together at Espanyol, as a factor in persuading the player to move.
A full international for Argentina, Zabaleta joined Manchester City for £6.5 million back in 2008, but with talks over a contract extension stalling, paper reports claim the player could be keen on a move.
Malaga are also said to be keen on the player, who spent three years in La Liga with the Catalonia club before moving to Manchester City.
Zabaleta has made over 100 appearances for the Citizens in all competitions, and has build a reputation as a firm fans favourite at Manchester City during his three years at the club.
However, with uncertainty hanging over the future of compatriot Carlos Tevez at Eastlands, the right back's future with Manchester City may also be in question.
