Roma in negotiations for Bari prodigy

Bari youngster Nicola Bellomo’s representative has confirmed negotiations for a potential move to Roma.

The highly-touted 21 year-old attacking midfielder is known to have been followed by a score of Serie A admirers for some time now.

AC Milan officials met with their Bari counterparts this week to discuss a possible deal, but it seems Roma and Inter have the upper hand in the sweepstakes for Bellomo’s signature.

“I can say that Roma are one of a number of clubs who like Nicola,” agent Davide Lippi told La Roma Siamo Noi.

“Roma are very interested in the player, but I can’t really say too much more as this is a very delicate phase.

“We are talking to Roma, that is true, but we’ll have to see what happens next.”

The player’s current contract with the Stadio San Nicola outfit runs until June 2014.
