Italian reports claim Jose Fontes will leave Leicester City and take over as chief scout for Jose Mourinho’s Roma.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the negotiations are a very advanced stage and a deal should be imminent.
Fontes has been working for the Foxes since 2016, having previously been a match analyst and then director at Boavista.
He was promoted to senior scout at Leicester in 2019 and just celebrated winning the FA Cup.
This is another step in the Portuguese takeover of Roma, joining coach Mourinho and director of sport Tiago Pinto.
