Atletico Madrid defender Nehuen Perez is set to join Parma on a dry loan.
Sky Sport reports that the final details are being sorted between the Spanish side and Parma to bring the Argentine to Italy for the upcoming season.
Roma had been eyeing the young defender in recent weeks and tried to acquire him on loan with an option to buy from the La Liga outfit.
Atletico Madrid, though, did not want to lose control of the player and, therefore, accepted the proposal of the Gialloblu.
The Argentine spent last season on loan with Portuguese side Famalicão and was eager to find a new experience after it became clear that manager Diego Simeone would not be counting on him for this upcoming campaign.
