Micah Richards is reportedly a target for Roma.

Italian paper Corriere dello Sport claims Roma coach Rudi Garcia is interested in the England international .

Richards 24 has returned to action after an injury-plagued 15 months but has been unable to dislodge Pablo Zabaleta from City's right-back berth.

He is also yet to agree new terms with the Blues despite the club opening talks in the summer. This has alerted Garcia who feels City could be persuaded to let Richards go.

Roma could face competition from Newcastle with Alan Pardew also interested in Richards.
