Roma close in on deal for São Paulo defender Rafael Tolói
Roma are expected to complete the signing of São Paulo defender Rafael Tolói today.
The 23 year-old will reportedly arrive in Rome this morning and undergo a medical.
The deal hinges, however, on whether the the Italian consulate in São Paulo can process the paper work in time to ensure Tolói is able to register as an EU player.
Should the transfer be processed, then the Glória d'Oeste-native will become the seventh Brazilian owned by Roma, joining Marquinho, Rodrigo Taddei, Maicon, Michel Bastos, Dodô and Leandro Castán.
