According to Calciomercato (via BILD), “RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg is on Monchi’s wish list, after the deal for Malcom fell through. Roma are currently in search of a winger, as Barcelona snatched Malcom right in front of their eyes. According to the report, Forsberg is a concrete possibility for the Giallorossi, even though the German side have previously stated their unwillingness to sell the Swede. ”
