Fluminense midfielder Jean linked to Roma
Fluminense's midfielder Jean is in Roma's shortlist, and they are considering the possibility of making an offer in the next transfer window, according to reports from Italy.
Jean was part of the Fluminense squad that won the Brazilian National First Division last year and has recently been called up for Brazil's national team as well.
The 26-year old midfielder has prior European experience, as he was loaned to Portuguese league team Penafiel in 2008, when he was still under contract with São Paulo.
Roma are also interested in Grêmio's midfielder Fernando, following his good performances in Brazil's games against Italy and Russia.
Fernando has been linked to Napoli as well, Grêmio are expected to demand around 10 million Euros to sell the player.
If Roma sign either of the players, they will have six Brazilian players in their squad, as centrebacks Marquinhos and Leandro Castán, left-back Dodô and midfielders Marquinho and Rodrigo Taddei already play for the club.
