Serie A giants Roma have put in enquiries for Aston Villa target Mario Hermoso over a potential summer switch to the Stadio Olimpico.


The Spanish defender is set to leave Atletico Madrid on a free transfer following the end of his contract this summer.


A move to the Premier League has been mooted and it was suggested earlier this month that he was all but sure to sign for Aston Villa.



Aston Villa can offer Champions League football to Hermoso, but the defender appears to be yet to make any definitive decision over his future.


According to DAZN Italia, Roma have made enquiries into the possibility of signing the centre-back this summer.



Daniele De Rossi wants to add an experienced defender to his squad for next season and Hermoso is a player they are tracking.


Feelers have been put out to assess whether the defender would be interested in joining Roma this summer.



However, Napoli have the lead over other Italian clubs in the pursuit of the 28-year-old centre-back ahead of the transfer window.
