Defensive targets

Here is a summary of the main defenders to have been linked with AS Roma in recent weeks and months.

For each player, their specific position, age at the start of the season and time left on their contract is stated, as well as the sources that have linked them with Roma and when those rumours most recently were reported.

The 2021 summer transfer window in Italy closed on August 31st. Unless the date of most recent link is after that point, it is unclear whether or not each player remains on Roma’s radar for future transfer windows.
