Verona close to Romulo

Verona are reportedly close to sealing negotiations to sign Romulo from Fiorentina outright, before likely selling him on.

The versatile defensive player impressed during an initial loan move from La Viola, but has been since linked with the likes of Roma and Juventus this summer.

However, before then, Verona have been in talks with Fiorentina to resolve signing Romulo outright, although these have reportedly stalled over valuation.

The Corriere Fiorentino, though, are running the line that an agreement is close and that it will come in at the €3.5m amount Fiorentina have reportedly been pressing for.

On from closing this deal, Verona are seen as likely to then sell the 27-year-old on for between €6m and €7m.
