Sky Italia: Roma pressing for Romulo

This morning, Sky Italia’s Manuele Baiocchini has confirmed Gianluca Di Marzio’s report that Roma are pressing for Verona’s Romulo.

Romulo, who has an Italian passport, is admired by both Walter Sabatini and Rudi Garcia because of his versatility (he can play as a midfielder and fullback) and the fact that he would not take up a non-EU spot on the roster.

In an attempt to speed up negotiations, Roma are prepared to send Salih Uçan on loan to the Venetian for the entire season.
