Giallorossi director Walter Sabatini is a longtime admirer of the 'new Roberto Carlos' and the left-back has apparently already agreed terms on a move to the Italian capital
Giallorossi director Walter Sabatini has allegedly been tracking the full-back for some time and a deal has now been brokered with the 20-year-old's current employers which will see the player, who has been compared with Roberto Carlos, arrive at the Stadio Olimpico in the summer.
Indeed, it is claimed that Dodo, who is currently out of action with a knee injury but expected to return to full fitness in May, has agreed terms on a five-year contract with the resurgent Serie A side.
Meanwhile, Corriere dello Sport claims that Roma have made enquiries about Juan Guillermo Cuadrado, who is currently enjoying a fine season on loan at Lecce from Udinese.
Coach Luis Enrique is said to be a keen admirer of the Colombian and Roma view Cuadrado as a better option than Udinese's current wing-back Mauricio Isla, who is reportedly valued at €15 million by the club.
