The agent of Bari prodigy Nicola Bellomo has admitted that he is in talks with Roma about a potential move.
The almost 22-year-old is an attacking midfielder who is being monitored by a number of top-flight outfits.
Milan held negotiations with Bari this week, but it is understood that Roma and Inter are better placed to net the youngster.
“I can say that Roma are one of a number of clubs who like Nicola,” Davide Lippi told La Roma Siamo Noi.
“Roma are very interested in the player, but I can’t really say too much more as this is a very delicate phase.
“We are talking to Roma, that is true, but we’ll have to see what happens next.”
Bellomo’s current contract at the Stadio San Nicola will expire in June 2014.
