France coach Didier Deschamps says Laurent Blanc is set to take charge of AS Roma.
Blanc has been out of work since leaving the France post last summer.
"Before saying anything, I want to wait until it is official, but I know they are on the right track with talks," said Deschamps in a Press conference.
"Laurent wants a bench and a new opportunity to work. Roma are a good club, albeit with a particular type of pressure around them.
"If it is officially confirmed, then I'm very happy for him."
