Report: Roma close in on €5 million deal for Coritiba defender Abner
Roma are closing in on a deal for Coritiba defender Abner, according to reports.
The 17 year-old will be out with a cruciate ligament injury until April, but Roma have still pressed ahead to secure an agreement.
Sky Sport Italia suggests a €5 million offer has been accepted by Coritiba, with the deal expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
Abner appeared just once as a substitute for Coritiba last season, but was a notable performer at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, where Brazil reached the quarter-finals.
