Liverpool striker Luis Suarez is a target for Roma and the Serie A side could use connections with Fenway Sports Group to seal a deal for the Anfield star.
The Italians are looking for a high profile signing to compliment manager Luis Enrique’s strike-force and see the Reds’ Uruguayan as the perfect signing, according to the Daily Mail.
The report also claims the club from the Italian capital have their eye on Chelsea’s Fernando Torres, but see Suarez as the more realistic, as well as cheaper, option.
Kenny Dalglish’s side are struggling in the Premier League, going through their worst run since the 1950s.
Roma hope to use Liverpool’s low ebb and the criticism Suarez was subjected to following the Patrice Evra affair as tools in a bid to lure him to the Italian capital.
The report claims that Roma’s new president, Thomas Di Benedetto, will use his links with the Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool’s owners, to try and gain an upper hand in negotiations.
Di Benedetto is a minority partner in the company that bought the Merseyside club and the Roma hierarchy reportedly believe a bid in the region of £20million will be enough to convince Liverpool to sell.
