RomaPress – As the hours and minutes pass, it appears increasingly likely that Roma’s incoming business is all but finished on this transfer deadline day.
The capital club was pushing to acquire a midfielder before the final gong, however, barring a last minute surprise, this is unlikely to happen.
That includes a potential last-minute move for Porto midfielder Sergio Oliveira. The 29 year-old, who has been at the club since 2015, was linked with a transfer to the Italian capital throughout the summer.
Oliveira is represented by the same agency as Rui Patricio and José Mourinho, Gestifute, and was keen to join Roma before the close of the transfer window. However, talks between the two clubs didn’t get far.
Rumors of a deal being struck between Roma and Porto were immediately denied by the clubs. In addition, a Gestifute executive informs RomaPress that there is “zero” truth to this report.
