AS Roma are interested in signing Galatasaray’s in-form left back Alex Telles according to the Turkish Newspaper Milliyet.

The Serie A giants are looking to sign an alternative to Ashley Cole who has failed to impress since joining from Cheslea at the start of the season.

Inter have also been linked with Telles recently. However, Telles has not received an offer from Inter according to football agent Fernando Otto.

“Mancini signed Alex from Gremio and was really fond of him but I have not heard of anything since he left,” Otto told Milliyet.
