AS Roma are keeping close tabs on Jean Michael Seri and Mateo Kovacic, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Giallorossi plan to shake up their midfield options in the summer as both Radja Nainggolan and Alessandro Florenzi could leave and Daniele De Rossi is now past their prime.
Recent reports suggest that sporting director Monchi has dropped his interest in Milan Badelj, with Jean-Michael Seri and Mateo Kovacic the first names on his hit-list.
The Ivorian was close to leaving Nice last summer, only for his move to Barcelona to fall through, and he remains keen on leaving.
Mateo Kovacic, on the other hand, may jump at the opportunity to return to Serie A and improve his chances of securing regular first team football.
