The 29-year-old Spanish midfielder, who is contracted to the Biancocelesti until 2025, has recently been linked with a move away from Rome, with his position at the start of the summer transfer window seeming incredibly uncertain.

Luis Alberto is a key part of coach Maurizio Sarri’s squad but has so far struggled to adapt to the 62-year-old Italian coach’s tactical system.
