Roma are expected to complete their swoop for Nantes talent Loic Nego in the next few days.
The right-back is available on a free transfer after impressing in Ligue 2 with Nantes this season.
He was also of interest to the likes of Benfica, Cesena and Saint-Etienne.
It is widely reported in Italy and France that Roma have secured a deal for Nego and will sign him possibly as early as this weekend.
He will become the first signing since Coach Luis Enrique took over.
