Maurizio Sarri is the frontrunner to take charge at Stadio Olimpico as he looks to exit Chelsea after enduring a miserable first campaign.
The current Chelsea head coach has been severely criticised for inconsistent results, tactical rigidity and reluctance to play young stars like Ruben Loftus Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi.
According to Italian outlet Corriere Dello Sport, Roma owner James Pallotta has summoned the hierarchy of his club to convene to bring a ring of changes with the new manager on top of the agenda.
Roma are said to have made the first contact with Sarri in February which the Italian denied irrevocably at a press conference:
‘I have a contract with Chelsea for the next two seasons, so it is impossible to have another contract.
‘I read in an Italian newspaper something about a meeting with Baldini but I think for the moment Franco is in South Africa, so it is very difficult.’
