Roma are on the verge of concluding a deal to sign Corinthians’ defender Dodo, according to reports in Italy.
The 20-year-old defender will apparently move to the Italian capital at the end of the current campaign.
The left-back, who has only just celebrated his 20th birthday, could sign a five-year contract with the Olimpico outfit.
A former Brazil Under-17 international, he has been previously targeted by Premiership giants Manchester United.
Dodo, full name José Rodolfo Pires Ribeiro, has a Portuguese passport and will thus not take up a non-EU spot in the squad.
