Incoming AS Roma president Thomas DiBenedetto has indicated his desire to sign a U.S. international for the Serie A club.

DiBenedetto, chairman of the consortium that agreed to buy a 67 percent controlling share of Roma in April, is a Boston native and reportedly keen to invest in American talent.

"We are obviously scouting players everywhere and we are obviously interested in the American products, both in MLS and abroad," DiBenedetto told MLSsoccer.com.

The Boston Globe reported that DiBenedetto has already contacted the agents for U.S. internationals Landon Donovan and Michael Bradley to gauge any potential interest by the pair in a move to Italy.
