Diego Llorente Targeted by Real Betis Amid Uncertain Roma Future

The future of Diego Llorente at AS Roma remains uncertain, with recent reports suggesting that Real Betis have shown strong interest in the Spanish defender. According to PTV Sevilla and Relevo, Betis is keen on acquiring the Leeds United center-back, who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Roma.

The interest from Betis emerged during discussions with Leeds United regarding Marc Roca, the midfielder currently on loan at Betis. The conversations also highlighted Llorente as a potential target, especially given the recent changes in Betis’s defensive lineup. With the retirement of Sokratis and the transfer of Chadi Riad, Betis finds itself in need of bolstering their defense. Currently, the squad is left with only Bartra, who is dealing with an injury, and Pezzella.

Llorente, a 30-year-old former Real Sociedad player, tops Betis’s list due to his extensive experience in both European competitions and La Liga. His skill set and familiarity with Spanish football make him an ideal candidate to strengthen Betis’s backline.

As the transfer window progresses, the coming weeks will be crucial in determining whether Llorente will stay at Roma or return to Spain to join Real Betis. Stay tuned for more updates on this evolving situation.
