Italian daily newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport understands that AS Roma are weighing up a summer bid for Cagliari defender Davide Astori.
With the Giallorossi closing in on Champions League qualification, they are looking to add few more quality players to their ranks at the end of the season.
And La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Roma are stepping up their efforts to sign Italian defender Davide Astori from Cagliari.
The Italy international is already on the radar of Borussia Dortmund, but the Giallorossi appear to be in pole position at the moment.
And with Roma set to face Cagliari in the league at the weekend, this could be a good opportunity for the two clubs to establish initial contacts.
Having closed the gap behind leaders Juventus to eight points with a 4-2 triumph over Parma, the Giallorossi can be backed at 16/1 to produce a major upset and lift the Serie A title.
