Roma line up deal for Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul

Posted by

Serie A heavyweights Roma have set their sights on Tottenham Hotspur outcast Younes Kaboul as part of a double Premier League transfer swoop, according to reports in Italy.

Rudi Garcia’s side, currently sat in second place behind champions Juventus, have not given up on Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski according to Tutto Mercato.

The website also claims that Spurs centre-half Kaboul has emerged as a target for the Giallorossi. He has fallen down the pecking order at White Hart Lane and has barely more than 12 months remaining on his contract.

Kaboul has made only 11 Premier League appearances under head coach Mauricio Pochettino, who arrived at the club at the start of the current campaign.

Fabianski has established himself at the Liberty Stadium this term after failing to secure a regular first-team place at previous club Arsenal. The Poland international could be seen as a natural replacement for 38-year-old Morgan De Sanctis, but would face competition from compatriot and namesake Lukasz Skorupski.

Coincidentally, Fabianski battled for a starting berth with another fellow countryman, Wojciech Szczesny, during his time with the Gunners.

Despite mixed form since the winter break in Serie A, Roma are on course to clinch qualification for next season’s Champions League, which could boost their chances of landing their primary targets when this summer’s transfer window opens.
