The Rome club are looking to the 28-year-old Frenchman as a possible replacement for Luis Alberto who is interesting Sevilla this summer transfer window.
Bourigeaud’s future is in flux this summer as his contract has just a year left to run and, despite an offer to extend, he is yet to agree a new deal. After an outstanding season for Rennes, Bourigeaud has expressed an interest in playing overseas for the first time in his career with Lazio, and Roma, long term admirers of the player.
