The experienced Brazilian international centre-back Leandro Castan is likely to leave the Serie A outfit in January.
The 31-year-old defender joined Giallorossi in 2012 from Corinthians but never quite managed to hold down a regular playing spot earning only 70 Serie A appearances during five years in Rome.
Castan was meant to go on a year-long deal to Sampdoria for the 2016-17 but just days prior to the new campaign his loan was terminated and the Brazilian went to Torino instead.
Hopes that he could resurrect his career were short-lived as Castan ended up playing mere nine matches during the entire season before returning to AS Rome.
Leandro Castan has yet to feature for Giallorossi this season and looks set to be dispatched on yet another loan once the transfer market reopens in January.
Il Tempo is suggesting that Giallorossi are actively seeking for a solution and that a loan back to Brazil could be on the cards.
Turkish media, however, report that Galatasaray could be prepared to present Castan with an escape route this winter.
