Roma director Walter Sabatini is in the process of planning for next season after seeing the Giallorossi's Scudetto challenge fizzle out.
The Lupi led Serie A at the start of the season after putting together a record-breaking run of 10 consecutive wins.
But the wheels fell off somewhat and Juventus have overtaken Roma and are running away with the Scudetto.
In a bid to challenge for glory next season, Roma are expected to bolster their ranks and the midfield is a key area.
The loss of Dutch international star Kevin Strootman to a cruciate ligament injury has exposed the lack of options for Rudi Garcia and one addition to the squad could be Tottenham's Paulinho.
Another reported Roma target is Newcastle United defender Davide Santon with Manchester United's Alex Buttner seen as an outside shot.
Spurs paid around £17m to lure Paulinho from Brazilian side Corinthians in July 2013, which was at the time the club's transfer record.
It seems unlikely that Roma would be able to spend that kind of money and improbable that Spurs would let him leave.
