Francesco Totti has expressed his disappointment that Roma failed to land Fiorentina striker Adrian Mutu this summer.
The Giallorossi tabled a bid - believed to be in the region of £18million - for the Romania international last week, but it was rejected by Fiorentina.
And after seeing Roma finish second to Inter Milan in Serie A last season, club captain Totti has admitted frustration at the failure to land Mutu.
"Did I expect the Mutu situation to end like this? No, it really seemed like a done deal," Totti told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"We could already sense his arrival, but fate wanted things to go this way and it certainly isn't the club's fault."
However, Totti has announced that Roma have now switched their attention to two unnamed targets.
"Now we must look elsewhere," added Totti.
"The coach and the club are talking about two players, but I won't be naming names because I don't want to cause problems."
