According to reports this evening, Roma have snatched a last-gasp deal with Fluminense to sign Marquinho for €3.5m.
The midfielder spent the last six months at the Stadio Olimpico on loan and the deadline for taking up their option on him is tonight.
Earlier today the Giallorossi tried to get a discount on the transfer, offering €2.5m to make the move permanent.
Fluminense rejected that proposal, but according to Sky Sport Italia an improved bid of €3.5m was successful.
