AS Roma have made a bid for Sao Paolo defender Rhodolfo.

Corriere dello Sport says Roma have made a €12m proposal to San Paolo for 26-year-old Rhodolfo.

It's reported the defender was spotted by director of sport Walter Sabatini when he was meant to be scouting teammate Bruno Uvini in the same game.

Rhodolfo's buy-out clause is €15m, but Roma hope to pay €5m for a one-year loan and an extra €7m to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
