Roma are close to signing Mehdi Benatia from Udinese, offering €6.5m plus co-ownership of Andrea Bertolacci.
According to Tuttosport, the negotiations have been going for some time and could be reaching a successful conclusion.
The Giallorossi do not have a new Coach yet, but have set their sights firmly on the 26-year-old Moroccan international defender.
It’s claimed Udinese have agreed a sale for €6.5m plus co-ownership of trequartista Bertolacci, who is currently playing with Genoa.
Bertolacci is co-owned with Genoa, so Roma’s move would effectively cut all ties with the talented 22-year-old.
