Roma coach Spalletti in the market for new striker

Spalletti said: “I think Vucinic has the opportunity to represent a more physical front man, as at the moment we want to continue with Totti in that position.

“Okaka is also an interesting alternative. I think we’re alright in that role, even if a tall centre-forward gives the side other options. If we are to go on the market, it will be for areas where we are less well covered.

“I hope to have a few players recover from injury over the Christmas break and trust that the club will pay close attention to reinforce certain areas. However, I don’t want to name names, as it would send the wrong signal to the players.”
