Rumours are mounting over a move for Greek international Vasilis Torosidis to Roma, with his contract set to expire in 2013.
The Giallorossi are in pole-position for the versatile Olympiacos right-back and, according to Calciomercato.com, the move is as close as a phone call away from completion.
Further confirmation comes from the fact that new full-back Dodo, who arrived from Corinthians on a free transfer earlier this summer, will not be ready to make his debut until November because of a knee injury.
The capital club are in the market for defensive reinforcements after releasing Aleandro Rosi, Gabriel Heinze and Juan this summer.
