Buffon recently announced he will leave Juventus this summer when his contract expires.
And the veteran goalie admitted he is not sure whether to retire or continue playing.
Should Buffon decide not to hang up his gloves just yet, he is set to have plenty of options to choose from.
And one of those is Juve's Serie A rivals Roma, according to TuttoSport.
SunSport columnist Mourinho is looking to strengthen his goalkeeping department when he takes over from Paolo Fonseca.
And the Portuguese boss is said to have highlighted the reliable Italian.
Buffon has played 684 times for Juventus during two spells, with his first lasting 17 seasons.
Before he joined Juventus in 2001, Buffon build his reputation in 220 games for fellow Italians Parma.

And the 2018-19 campaign saw him play 25 times for French side Paris Saint-Germain before rejoining Juve.
As a result, Buffon has won numerous club trophies, including ten Serie A titles, one Ligue 1 title and five Italian Cups.
Buffon was also capped a staggering 176 times by Italy and played a key role in their triumph at the 2006 World Cup.
He is said to have offers on the table from several clubs around Europe including Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon, Eintracht Frankfurt and Galatasaray.
Greek side Olympiacos and Ukrainians Dynamo Kiev are the other teams said to have sent proposals.
Elsewhere, Roma have also been linked with a move for Man Utd outcast Sergio Romero.
The goalkeeper has not played a single minute for the Red Devils this season and is certain to leave in the summer when his contract expires.
Romero, 34, is an Argentina international but also has an Italian passport.
Him and Mourinho are said to have had an excellent relationship when the Portuguese boss was in charge at Old Trafford.
And Romero put his stunning £3.5million mansion up for sale in March - all-but confirming he will leave.
