Giacomo Bonaventura is edging closer to the exit at AC Milan, with Roma the favourites to land the Italian midfielder.

The 30-year-old is out of contract at the Stadio San Siro this summer and has shown no signs of penning a renewal, paving the way for other clubs in Serie A to battle for his signature.

Former club Atalanta are keen to bring Bonaventura back to Bergamo, whilst Torino have also identified him as a transfer target. However, La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Roma are in pole position to land the former Italy international on a free transfer.

The Giallorossi are his preferred option and have pursued him for much of the past season, with the capital club keen to bring in low-cost options after a financially turbulent year.

Bonaventura joined Milan from Atalanta in 2014 and has gone on to score 34 goals in 171 appearances, lifting the Supercoppa Italiana in 2016.
