Roma are looking to offload Seydou Doumbia and hope to replace him with Sevilla’s leading goalscorer Carlos Bacca.

Doumbia joined the Giallorossi in the January transfer window from Russia side CSKA Moscow but has since failed to impress after a string of injuries and poor form, leading to speculation that Roma will try to get rid of the Ivorian as they look to solve their problems in front of goal.

Colombian striker Carlos Bacca is the front runner on the Lupi’s wish list according to Il Messaggero, with 29 goals to his name throughout all competitions this season, a tally enough to entice attention from the capital city.

Bacca was previously linked with a move to Rome earlier on in the season, along with Sevilla partner Ever Banega, though it now seems interest is focused solely on that of the former.

The striker could additionally replace forwards Adem Ljajic or Gervinho should Doumbia remain, as both names are increasingly connected with a possible departure from the club.

However, it is reported that Roma would have to match the €30 million release clause detailed within Bacca’s contract, should the wish to bring in the 28-year-old.
