Jean Michael Seri joined Fulham for £25m last summer, but after less than 12 months in west London, the Ivory Coast international looks to be on his way out.
Seri, who was close to joining Barcelona two summers ago, has attracted the interest of several Serie A clubs, as the midfielder looks for a way out of the Championship.
This appears to have opened the door for Roma, who Seri's agent Franklin Mala, claims have already been in contact, saying: "My Italian partner and I spoke to Roma a couple of weeks ago. We'll see how the situation evolves.
"He'd be happy to play in Serie A and Roma are a very good club."
The Ivorian has spent this summer playing in the Africa Cup of Nations, where his Ivory Coast side were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Algeria. The midfielder's involvement has been limited however, having seen just over 120 minutes of action and not featuring in either of their knockout ties.
Nevertheless, Seri has been given an extended summer break and will therefore not report for pre-season training with Fulham for another two weeks.
Seri arrived in London with plenty of promise, as the Cottagers believed they had a genuinely top-class player on their hands. However, the midfielder was one of his side's biggest disappointments in a campaign, which saw them relegated with just 26 points.
