AS Roma believed to be interested in Portsmouth’s Belhadj

Italian club AS Roma are believed to be highly interested in Portsmouth winger Nadir Belhadj.

The Algeria international is almost certain to leave the south coast club at the end of the season and Roma have emerged as the frontrunner for his services although his agent Mark Pomorin has not heard anything definite thus far.

"There are many rumours about Nadir and I know these rumours about Roma but at the moment I have not heard anything definite," he told

"When a player is important, it is normal there are many requests.

"Giallorossi executives have not made themselves heard yet, but that does not mean there cannot be contact in the near future.

"But it should be asked directly to Portsmouth."
