AS Roma are interested in Tottenham pair Paulinho and Sandro.

Roma are in the market for a new midfielder with Kevin Strootman ruled out for six months due to knee injury.

The Daily Express says Roma are optimistic about landing the pair especially as Franco Baldini is Spurs' sporting director.

It is thought that should Roma miss out on them, then they have a contingency plan in the form of Parma's midfield enforcer Marco Parolo.
