Roma name Menez, Benayoun as transfer targets

Roma coach Luciano Spalletti has revealed his side are still looking for two reinforcements this summer, with Jeremy Menez of Monaco and Liverpool's Yossi Benayoun mentioned as targets.

Roma, who finished second behind Internazionale last season in Serie A, are looking for replacements for Brazilian winger Mancini and Ludovic Giuly.

Mancini has joined Inter while Giuly returned to France with Paris St Germain.

However, as yet Roma have been slow to move in the transfer market, with only former Liverpool left-back John Arne Riise arriving.

But Spalletti insists his staff are looking at possible targets.

'There will be two new signings,' the 49-year-old coach told Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

'The names? They're the names you've heard. Menez and Benayoun are both top class players.

'Menez is strong, and he's done some things during this past season.'

Spalletti also revealed his aim is to provide competition for places.

'We need two players for each position,' he continued.

'When there's less pressure on the coach, he should know when the right moment is to change players.'
