Roma are reportedly ready to announce the signing of Mehdi Benatia from Udinese, awaiting only Valerio Verre’s agreement to go the other way.
The Giallorossi have been in negotiations to sign the Zebrette’s French-born Moroccan international in recent weeks and reportedly now stand on the verge of announcing completion of a deal.
The Gazzetta dello Sport report that the 26-year-old is set for a medical examination on Tuesday, with the only formality holding up the deal seen as youngster Verre’s agreement to move to Udine in part exchange.
