AS Roma are lining up a raid on AC Milan for Bryan Cristante.

The exciting midfield talent is regarded highly inside Italian football, but struggling to establish himself in Milan coach Max Allegri's plans.

Sky Italia says Roma chief Walter Sabatini is a big fan of Cristante and working on bringing him to the capital in January.

Roma president James Pallotta has put money aside to tempt Milan into cashing in on the youngster.
