The Auxerre youngster has been dubbed 'the new Laurent Blanc' and he has expressed his admiration for Roma coach Fabio Capello, who has guided his side to the Serie A summit.
"Football is my life," said Mexes. "My future could be in Italy as the championship is one of the best, where many world stars play.
"Roma would be a very good destination. They are a great team, they have a lot of money and are investing in young players with intelligence.
"They signed Antonio Cassano, an extraordinary talent, and this means they have an open mind and clear ideas.
"Roma have an extraordinary coach for me in Fabio Capello," he told calciomercato.
"With him, many defenders have become champions. With his attention, I could improve more."
