According to the site AS Roma Live It, after Daniele De Rossi took charge at Roma, the club's transfer targets have shifted focus. No longer in need of a central defender due to De Rossi's preference for a four-man defense, the Giallorossi are now eyeing an offensive winger.

Recent discussions included a potential swap with Fiorentina, involving Ikoné and Belotti. However, a surprising name has emerged in the transfer talks, creating a buzz around Trigoria.

Federico Bernardeschi, formerly with Juventus and currently playing in MLS with Toronto FC, has offered himself to Roma. Having known Bernardeschi from his time in Serie A, De Rossi might consider the move given the relatively low financial implications. The 29 year old winger wanted to return to Italy and play in a competitive league. Although he had also offered himself to Juventus, reports suggest his profile was proposed to Roma.

Bernardeschi's stint in MLS seems to have lost its appeal, and he is eager to make a return to European football. The versatile winger, who can play on either flank, could bring a blend of experience and creativity to Roma's attacking midfield.

In a hypothetical attacking trio or a 4-2-3-1 formation, Bernardeschi's presence might add a new dimension to the team's dynamics. As an ex-Fiorentina player who left Juventus on a free transfer, his potential arrival could inject flair into Roma's attacking setup.
