As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio, Roma continue to push to acquire Barca defender Thomas Vermaelen.
After making the acquisition of Fazio official, Roma would like another reinforcement in the defense as the Giallorossi continue pressing to bring the Belgian to Rome. Optimism is filtering into Trigoria about the operation and Roma hope to close the transaction before the weekend. However, it will depend on president Jame Pallotta to approve the move. Real Madrid defender Nacho would be easier to acquire, but there are no updates on the Spaniard’s situation.
