Roma join race for highly-rated Belmonte

Roma have made contact with Serie B Bari for defender Nicola Belmonte.

The 21 year-old is emerging as the hottest transfer property outside Serie A and along with Roma, also has Palermo, Parma and Sampdoria eager to open talks with Bari about a fee for his transfer.

Bari, however, insist Belmonte will remain with them until June - at least.
