Exclusive: Roma make contact to sign Borussia Dortmund star

07 December at 22:10
Serie A giants Roma have made contact to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl, with AC Milan also monitoring the German very closely.

The midfielder has, all of a sudden, lost his way at Dortmund and has become a fringe player at the club this season. He has made only three appearances in the Bundesliga this season, appearing twice in the UEFA Champions League.

Calciomercato exclusively understand that Roma have initiated contact with Dortmund to sign Weigl on loan, with AC Milan also having a look at a possible move but they see Cesc Fabregas as more of a priority.

It is said that Monchi has already established contacts with Dortmund and Weigl's entourage and he is very keen on bolstering Roma's midfield in January.

BILD had stated some weeks ago that Dortmund could consider loaning the midfielder out in January and Milan are just monitoring him currently, a season and a half after Massimiliano Mirabelli seriously wanted the player at the San Siro last summer.
