Roma are reportedly ready to push through a deal for Cagliari and Italy starlet Nicolo Barella.
According to Corriere dello Sport, contact is ‘intensifying’ between Roma and Cagliari for Barella.
The 20-year-old made his top-flight breakthrough last season and recently earned his first-ever Italy call-up for their World Cup qualifiers against FYR Macedonia and Albania.
However, Il Corriere warns the midfielder will not come cheaply as the Sardinians would be holding out for a fee in the region of €20m.
