    Flamengo in bid for Bologna defender Roger Carvalho

    Flamengo are reportedly preparing a deal to secure Brazilian centre-back Roger Carvalho from Italian Serie A outfit Bologna.

    Rio de Janeiro: Flamengo are reportedly preparing a deal to secure Brazilian centre-back Roger Carvalho from Italian Serie A outfit Bologna.

    The Rio de Janeiro club has sought the player's agent, Eduardo Uram, to negotiate a deal in the European summer transfer window, reports Xinhua.

    Carvalho played under current Flamengo boss Jorginho at Brazilian top-flight club Figueirense in 2011.

    The 26-year-old has managed just four first-team appearances for Bologna since his move from Genoa in July last year.

    Flamengo already have five central defenders in their squad: Alex Silva, Wallace, Gonzalez, Renato Santos and Frauches.
