Roma have turned up the heat in their attempt to sign Sao Paulo starlet Casemiro, according to reports.
The youngster is considered as a talent of the future and he's caught the attention of Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini.
Both Milan clubs have been linked with the teenager over recent weeks, but the capital outfit could make a late swoop.
Casemiro, who nets only €80,000 a year, is still just 19-years-old and is contracted to his present club until 2015.
Sao Paulo value him at €30m, but it is being suggested that an offer of €15m would be enough for the Brazilian outfit to sell.
