Roma find Man Utd price for Wan-Bissaka too rich; turn to Arsenal as alternative

Roma have gone cold on signing Manchester United fullback Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

La Gazzetta dello Sport says Roma coach Jose Mourinho has switched his focus to signing Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin after being 'priced out' of a move to sign Wan-Bissaka.

The Spaniard is a much more affordable target for Roma this summer. Mourinho is set to be given a bumper transfer kitty this summer after leading Roma to the UEFA Europa Conference League title last season.

Mourinho is keen to strengthen his squad this summer in various positions, with right-back among the areas he wants to bolster most.

It is understood that United ace Wan-Bissaka has been deemed surplus to requirements by new manager Erik ten Hag already, meaning an exit is on the cards this summer.
