Al-Ahli join race for Roger Ibanez

Saudi side Al-Ahli have joined the race for Roma defender Roger Ibanez.

After having been linked with a move to Nottingham Forest – who earlier today submitted their first formal bid for the Brazilian centreback – Roger Ibanez is now drawing concrete interest from Saudi Arabia.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Al-Ahli have made an offer for the 25-year-old.

Roma are currently engaged in negotiations with both Al-Ahli and Nottingham, with Ibanez yet to make a decision regarding his own future.
