AS Roma and Arsenal have targeted the same player, Stephane Ruffier. Saint-Etienne goalkeeper seems to have many admirers around the world. Especially Rudi Gracia and Arsène Wenger that thanks to their French origins know the trans-alpine market very well.
Rudi Gracia is looking forward to the acquisition of a new goalkeeper, especially after Morgan De Sanctis underwent a surgical operation for his shoulder. Next season, AS Roma will have to face three very difficult competitions such as the Italian Cup, the Serie A and the Champions League and Garcia firmly believes that a third goalkeeper would be necessary.
At this stage, Sabatini will try to satisfy Garcia’s needs but the Wenger’s competition is really strong also because AS Roma does not want to get into an auction for the player.
