Italian daily Il Corriere dello Sport has learned that AS Roma are keen on Udinese players Mehdi Benatia and Roberto Pereyra.
According to the latest reports, the Giallorossi are wrapping up a €6 million deal for Benatia, but they are also interested in luring his teammate to Stadio Olimpico.
Roma are actively seeking a right-sided full-back and they could decide to go for the Argentine, provided the price is right.
Roberto Pereyra joined Udinese from River Plate in the summer of 2011, but he made just 11 Serie A appearances during his first season in Italy.
He has since nailed down a regular starting berth at Friuli, and went on to score 5 goals in 37 league matches this term.
Pereyra, 22, is capable of covering a number of positions across midfield, with his versatility greatly helping his cause at the start of his career with the Friuli outfit.
