"It is true, there is interest from Roma," Lacerenza told Tele Radio Stereo.

"Aleix is ​​a very high level player and it would be good to meet with Monchi, since they worked well together in Seville and had a good personal relationship."

Vidal has also been linked to Atletico Madrid and Lacerenza added: "Aleix is ​​happy to play in Spain, but that does not mean he would not like to try other leagues or other clubs.

"The important thing is that the two clubs agree on the terms, but for us a loan agreement is a possible solution."
