The FIGC is working to make Cagliari forward Joao Pedro, Roma defender Roger Ibanez and Lazio centre-back Luiz Felipe eligible to play for Italy ahead of the World Cup Qualifiers in March.
Italy finished second in the group behind Switzerland and are forced to go through two games in the play-off scheduled for March next year.
There are thus two games left to book a place at Qatar 2022 and Italy are hoping to make another three Brazilians eligible to play for the Azzurri.
The FIGC is working to complete the required documentation to potentially make three new players available for CT Roberto Mancini ahead of the games next year.
After the Federal Council, the reporters asked President Gabriele Gravina about Joao Pedro’s situation, but the President revealed there are two others as well.
“The offices of Club Italia are interested in all the players who can be called up,” Gravina said, according to TWM.
“They are working on three positions and are well underway. We resolve the formal part, then it’s up to the technician whether to call them up or not.”
The three players in question are the three Brazilians Joao Pedro, Ibanez and Luiz Felipe, who all play regularly in Serie A.
