Panamanian defender Roman Torres set for Palmeiras
Palmeiras are set to announce their third new signing for the 2013 season in the form of Panamanian centre-back Román Torres.
Torres, 26, has been impressing as club side Milionarios challenge for the Colombian league title and looks set to strengthen the Verdão defence for 2013.
Palmeiras have already added Vasco goalkeeper Fernando Prass and Coritiba right-back Ayrton to their squad for their Copa Libertadores campaign, while midfielder Fellipe Bastos remains a target.
The São Paulo-based side's approach for Torres was confirmed on Saturday by Milionarios president Felipe Gaitán.
Gaitán told Lancenet: "It's true that Palmeiras want Torres. It is almost complete, but we will sit down on Monday to talk over the final details."
The Panamanian, who is renowned for his physical strength, will replace Paraguayan Adalberto Roman who was allowed to leave at the end of the season and has since linked up with LDU Quito.
