AS Roma's pursuit of Sao Paulo midfielder Casemiro is intensifying.

It's been confirmed Casemiro's agent Joseph Lee will be in Rome next week for talks with Giallorossi chief Walter Sabatini.

Brazilian market expert Stefano Paolini also told that Lee had been in the city on December 16.

Roma will have to tie up the deal quickly, however, with Inter Milan also keen on Casemiro this month.
