Roma are interested in Galatasaray left-back Alex Telles according to Sporx.

The 21-year-old fullback joined Galatasaray on a €6 million transfer from Gremio last January.

The Brazilian left-back has only made six appearances for the Lions this season and has struggled for first team football due to the foreign player regulations in the Turkish Super League.

Telles’ agent Fernando Otto recently revealed that the young fullback could be forced to leave unless Cesare Prandelli grants him more playing time.

“Telles was playing very well last season under Mancini but has stalled since the arrival of Prandelli. This has noting to do with the foreign player restrictions,” Otto said.

“There are many clubs around Europe interested in Telles but he doesn’t even make the squad at Galatasaray. I cannot understand this. 

“If this continues Telles may leave for another club. He [Telles] just wants to play football.”

The former Gremio player has also been linked with Real Madrid, Sevilla and PSG.
