Roma are continuing negotiations with Santos for Marcos Leonardo

Contacts are continuing between Roma and Santos for the transfer of Marco Leonardo to the Italian capital.

The Brazilian striker is a target for Roma who have already made an offer but are not seen as the right fit by Santos.

The Gialloros have offered 11 million euros plus seven more bonuses, a sum Santos is looking to increase even further.

The 20-year-old Brazilian has excelled with Santos, where he scored 14 goals and assisted four others in 30 games.

Roma is attempting his transfer after failing to convince other names such as Gianluca Scamacca or Alvaro Morata.

Santos are aiming to receive an offer of 15 million euros plus five more bonuses to let the Brazilian talent leave.

However, the Italian media have reported that the negotiations between the two clubs are continuing and are expected to have a good conclusion with the striker who will join Roma.
