Serie A new boys Livorno are eager to take Brazilian Dodò on loan from Roma this season.
The 21-year-old made only 15 appearances for the Giallorossi between Serie A and Coppa Italia since arriving from Corinthians on a free transfer in July 2012.
Livorno earned promotion to the top flight via the Serie B play-offs and want to pack their squad with loaned talents.
Dodò would fit the bill and be given the opportunity for regular first team football in Serie A.
The Tuscans are also in advanced talks with Inter for goalkeeper Francesco Bardi, midfielders Alfred Duncan and Marco Benassi.
