Davide Astori and Roma are just ‘details’ away from an agreement, according to reports this afternoon.
The Cagliari defender had seemingly been on the verge of a switch with Lazio earlier this summer, but shocked everyone this week by penning a contract extension at the Isolani.
However, Sky Sport Italia insist that the player and the Giallorossi are now in discussions, and are close to agreeing terms.
It is thought that the capital club will sign the 27-year-old for €8m, with announcement soon.
Rudi Garcia admitted earlier today that the Stadio Olimpico side are in the market for another defender.
