It’s reported Roma made a firm step forward for Gonzalo Bueno, offering €3.5m plus performance-related bonuses.
They have been linked with the Nacional forward for several weeks, but negotiations were repeatedly put on hold.
Now that Genoa and Krasnodar are thought to be adding their interest into the mix, Sky Sport Italia claim Roma are speeding up the process.
According to transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, the Giallorossi presented a formal offer to Nacional worth €3.5m plus bonuses.
There would be another €0.5m at the 10th appearance, then a further €0.5m at the 20th game.
It’s rumoured this proposal is identical to the one put forward by Krasnodar, but Roma hope to take advantage of Uruguay Under-20 star Bueno’s desire to play in Serie A.
