Report: Roma agree deal for Coritiba defender Abner
Roma have agreed a deal for Coritiba defender Abner, according to reports in Italy.
Radio Mana Mana, as reported by Football Italia, claims the 17 year-old will make the switch next summer.
Previous reports had suggested Abner could join in January. But having suffered a cruciate ligament injury at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, he is expected to be out for the season.
Neither club have announced the deal, as yet, though the defenders’s injury has not thwarted Roma’s interest.
Abner has made just one first-team appearance for Coritiba. He featured for 26 minutes as a substitute during a 2-2 draw with Goiás in September.
