AS Roma coach Rudi Garcia says he wants to keep hold of midfielder Daniele de Rossi. De Rossi is agitating for a move away this summer after admitting he doesn't enjoy life in Rome.

Garcia said: "I have a great desire to meet De Rossi, as I do the rest of the squad. "De Rossi can play in a lot of roles, just give me the time to get to know him. You need talented players and fortunately Roma have them.

"I don't want to talk about individuals today though. We are working on transfers and you'll know more soon."
