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.
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.
It should never be termed as an Indian or an overseas coach. We need to get over such things. You need to be competent enough.
