AS Roma are interested in Tottenham defender Vedran Corluka.

The Croatian international this week declared he wanted to leave Spurs in January for first team football in order to secure his place in Slaven Bilic's Euros squad.

Roma chief Walter Sabatini is aware of Corluka's situation and planning a January bid for the unsettled defender.

Sabatini needs to find a new defensive signing after losing Nicolas Burdisso for the season with a knee injury. He has already been knocked back by Manchester City defender Stefan Savic in recent days.
