Guiza: Attracting interest
Daniel Guiza has admitted he would relish a move to Roma following reports the Serie A side are interested in signing the Mallorca striker.
La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that Roma have joined the race for the Spain international, although they could face competition from Barcelona and Manchester City.
The 27-year-old scored 27 goals in 37 Primera Liga matches for Mallorca last season to earn a place in Spain's Euro 2008 squad and alert some of Europe's biggest clubs.
Guiza played for the Barcelona B team for five months in 2003 before moving on to Murcia, and feels the time is right for another shot at establishing himself at a big club.
"I had a good season, I'm playing well and I am ready for a bigger club," he said. "Roma or Barcelona, or someone else, we'll see.
"For now I'm concentrating on the European Championships. But I like Roma, they are a good club and are in the Champions League."
La Corriere dello Sport, meanwhile, claims that Roma are considering a move for another Spain-based striker, Luis Fabiano.
The Brazil international has scored 48 goals in 102 games for Sevilla, although he is thought to be behind Juventus' Vincenzo Iaquinta and Fiorentina's Adrian Mutu on Roma's wish list.
