Roma have been warned that target Bruno Uvini is also receiving proposals from Paris Saint-Germain.
The Giallorossi have been linked with the Sao Paolo full-back for some time and their interest reportedly came to a head this week.
“Roma did track him, that is certain, though it’s too early to say there were negotiations,” agent Sabatino Durante told Centro Suono Sport.
“It’s also true to say that Paris Saint-Germain have made the more important step forward for the player so far.
“PSG could be an option for my client, though we do have other priorities.”
Even within Serie A, Roma could face competition from Genoa for Uvini.
