Roma have sparked an interest in signing Sporting’s Marcos Acuña according to a report from Italian news outlet

The Italian capital city club are on the look out for a long term replacement for the ageing Aleksandar Kolarov, whose contract with the club expires at the end of next season.

The Giallorossi side are however not the only Italian club currently interested in signing Argentine international Acuna either with Inter also interested in signing him.

Inter have been linked with making a move for him for a good few months now and a recent report even suggested that Sporting could offer Acuna to Inter as part of a deal for Joao Mario, if Lokomotiv Moscow do not turn his loan deal into a permanent one.

The 27-year-old, who has a contract with the Liga NOS side until 2023, has made 30 appearances across all competitions to date this term in which he has scored two goals and provided four assists.
