Europa League: Nilmar (Villarreal)
The agent of Villarreal
forward Nilmar has claimed that his client
is on the verge of signing for Roma
The Giallorossi reportedly had a €22 million bid for the Brazilian rejected over the summer but the player’s representative, Orlando da Hora, claimed last month that talks were ongoing with the Serie A side and he has now revealed that an agreement has almost been reached.
"I can only say we're going strong and I think I can close a deal with Roma," the agent is quoted as saying by Super Deporte
Nilmar had a fine 2010-11 campaign with Villarreal, netting 17 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions, but he has struggled for fitness and form this season and has scored just twice in La Liga.
