Roma are eyeing Atletico Paranaense wing-back Michel.

The 26 year-old carries an Italian passport and Atletico are ready to send him to Roma on-loan with a view to a permanent deal at the end of this season.

Roma see Michel as cover for Max Tonetto at left-back, with Portugal U21 international Vitorino Antunes expected to leave on-loan in January.

Michel has previous experience in Europe with Standard Liege in Belgium.
