Roma chief Petrachi urges Parma to deal in Rodwell

Former Manchester City midfielder Jack Rodwell is in talks with Parma.

Roma opted against pursuing the deal after manager Paulo Fonseca was left unconvinced.

The Sun says Rodwell, now determined to get his Italy move, is speaking to Parma in hope of completing a free transfer.

Roma sporting director Gianluca Petrachi however is still said to be an admirer of Rodwell and recommended him to his opposite number Daniele Faggiano when it became clear his Parma side were seeking midfield reinforcement.

Rodwell could join the likes of former Arsenal man Gervinho in the Parma ranks and join manager Roberto D'Aversa's squad as they look to climb the table from 14th place.
