Roma are close to signing Corinthians defender Leandro Castan, while talks are underway for Chievo’s Michael Bradley.
The Giallorossi are restructuring the side under new Coach Zdenek Zeman, who has a very different style to predecessor Luis Enrique.
It is reported the club has agreed a deal with Corinthians worth €5m for 25-year-old centre-back Castan, nicknamed the ‘new Lucio’ in Brazil.
Roma are also looking to reinforce the midfield and it is claimed in various news sources that Chievo star Bradley is the top target.
The American international had also been linked with Palermo, Juventus and Milan.
