Report: Roma sign Marquinho

There are strong reports that Roma have agreed to sign Fluminense winger Marquinho on loan for the rest of the season.

Both Italian and Brazilian media are suggesting the deal is already done for the 25-year-old left-sided midfielder.

The move is also set to include an option to buy at the end of the current campaign.

“He is a left-sided midfielder with good pace, strong physique and a fine left foot,” FIFA agent Sabatino Durante told

“In the last few years he has scored at least four or five goals per season. He can also adapt as a left-back, maybe even in a three-man defence. Marquinho would fit in well with the Roma squad.”
