Roma's search for a striker has taken them in the direction of Bayern Munich star Luca Toni, according to the player's representative, Jose Alberti.
"It's a negotiation that can be concluded successfully, at the moment there is no treaty, but only interest on the part of Roma. Both clubs are informed and we are awaiting a response from Bayern Munich," he said in an interview with tuttomercatoweb.
"Toni is very willing to return to Italy, also he played in the World Cup 2006 with [Roma captain] Francesco Totti and that is further incentive for him."
With the arrivals of Ivica Olic and Mario Gomez, it seems Toni is no longer a necessity at the Allianz Arena.
"I'm not saying he's been treated badly, but many no longer believe in his quality. Will Bayern let him go for €5 million? I don't want to get involved in these things because they don't concern me," he striker's representative added.
The Italian cost the Bavarians approximately €11 million when he joined from Fiorentina in 2007.
