Taison agent won't rule out Roma

Taison’s agent declared the midfielder “is happy at Shakhtar Donetsk, but nothing can be excluded” when asked if he will follow his Coach Paulo Fonseca to Roma this summer.

Fonseca is reportedly close to being named as the new Giallorossi tactician, and there have been recent reports of some of his players arriving in the Capital to reunite with him.

The 31-year-old Brazilian is one of those players linked with making the switch to Serie A, and his agent left the door open when he spoke today.

“I can say that we currently don’t have any negotiations in progress,” he told RomaPress.net.

“Taison is happy at Shakhtar, but nothing can be excluded. He has great admiration for the work of Paulo Fonseca, and they are good friends.”

The left-winger scored six times and provided 15 assists in 35 appearances between league and cup competitions for the Ukrainian side this season.
