Roma and Fiorentina are on high alert after Gremio defender Walter Kannemann’s agent flew in to Italy for meetings.
According to Calciomercato.it, the representative is hoping to work out a deal for his move to Serie A.
Among the clubs known to be interested in the 28-year-old are Roma and Fiorentina.
The Giallorossi, in particular, are seeking a centre-back and talks have stalled for Daniele Rugani, as Juventus want €24m plus youth team players Alessio Riccardi and Zan Celar.
Instead, Kannemann would be available for a €10m release clause in his contract with Gremio.
He is an Argentina international with five caps, so already knows Roma defender Federico Fazio.
