Roma are considering a move to sign Fulham midfielder Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa on a permanent basis, according to reports from Italy this morning.

Il Messaggero claims that Fulham’s Cameroonian midfielder is not keen on playing in the Championship and would welcome an opportunity away from Craven Cottage. Fulham yesterday rejected a loan offer from Valencia and Roma have added Anguissa to a shortlist for new midfielders that also includes Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz, Denis Zakaria, Thomas Delaney and Teun Koopmeiners, according to Gazetta dello Sport.

The Italian sports newspaper claims that Roma would be prepared to pay around £17m for Anguissa, whilst Fulham are holding out for an offer closer to their £21m valuation. Anguissa, who has 68 Fulham appearances in two seasons in London sandwiched between a more successful loan spell at Villarreal, started last Saturday’s friendly against Charlton – but getting him off the wage bill permanently would ease the Whites’ FFP worries. Luiz remains the Giallorrosi’s main target, but Villa are currently uninterested in parting with the Brazilian.
