AS Roma are on the hunt for a centre-back, and Senesi is a player who is thought to be on their radar.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Roma are preparing move for Feyenoord centre-back Marcos Senesi.
The Argentina international joined Feyenoord from San Lorenzo for a fee in the region of 7 million euros in September 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
The centre-back has featured in 48 matches this term, netting 3 goals and providing 3 assists in all competitions.
He is considered to be one of the best centre-backs in Argentina. Senesi has represented Argentina at Under-20 and Under-23 level, winning 4 caps and scoring one goal.
The Argentina international has just 12 months remaining on his contract and Feyenoord may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
AS Roma are looking to sign a centre-back and have identified the 25-year-old as potential transfer target. Jose Mourinho is a firm fan of Feyenoord centre-back and Roma could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The Italian giants are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
The former San Lorenzo man heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third.
According to the report, “AS Roma are launching a move for Feyenoord defender Marcos Senesi. Il Corriere dello Sport says Senesi is rated highly by Roma coach Jose Mourinho, who has prioritised his signing this summer. Roma meet Feyenoord in the final of Europa Conference League next week in Tirana. And talks over Senesi are set to be held, with the Argentine’s contract having a year to run. Roma will seek to do business for €6-7m.”
Euro Football Rumours
If Roma are genuinely interested, a deal would not be impossible to complete. Feyenoord are preparing to sell their centre-back should they receive right offer for him.
Good signing for AS Roma?
Marcos Senesi stands as an excellent option for Roma. He has all the skillset required to be a success story at Roma. Therefore, it makes sense for Mourinho to step up his attempts to bring the Argentina centre-back to Serie A side.
Roma fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
How strong that interest is and whether Roma will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
