Roma interested in signing Wolves defender Jonny

Roma are eyeing a move to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Jonny, according to Calciomercato.

New Roma manager Jose Mourinho is looking to make several changes to the squad following his summer appointment.

The former Tottenham Hotspur boss has already signed Rui Patricio from Wolves.

Patricio enjoyed three fantastic years at Molineux. However, it seems he is not the only Wolves player who could switch to Italy this summer.

Calciomercato claim that Jonny has emerged as one of the targets for Roma, with Mourinho looking to add depth and quality to his full-back areas.

The Giallorossi are also interested in signing Borussia Monchengladbach defender Ramy Bensebaini and Manchester United’s Alex Telles.

However, Mourinho has had no luck in his attempt to sign Telles from his former club.

Jonny joined Wolves in 2019 and has a contract at the club until 2025.

He signed a new deal early in February this year, and it is unclear whether Wolves will want to let him go.

He is primarily a left-back but can also play as a right-back or a left-sided midfielder.

The Spaniard made just seven Premier League appearances last season, with his campaign severely hampered by two serious injuries.

While the 27-year-old would be a smart addition for Roma, it is doubtful that Wolves will offload their versatile defender.
