Roma defender Roger Ibanez is edging closer to a move to Al-Ahli.

The Brazilian centreback has already agreed to personal terms with the Saudi club after evaluating offers from the Premier League, most notably Nottingham Forest.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Roma and Al-Ahli are progressing in their talks with the Giallorossi looking to earn around €35 million (including bonuses) for Ibanez.

Furthermore, Ibanez has not been called up for today’s pre-season friendly with Toulouse, further hinting at his imminent transfer.

As reported by Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo, Ibanez will earn €9 million per year at Al-Ahli.
