Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma are expected to complete the deals for Nacho Fernandez and Juan Jesus in the coming days, according to Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Giallorossi coach Luciano Spalletti needs two more centre-backs for the 2016/2017 campaign and sporting director Walter Sabatini is ready to grant his wish.
Namely, Roma have all but agreed to sign Nacho Fernandez on a season-long loan from Real Madrid, as the Spanish defender will jump at the opportunity to leave los Blancos in search of first team football.
At the same time, after several unsuccessful attempts, Juan Jesus will finally arrive to Stadio Olimpico, initially on temporary basis.
Roma will pay €2 million for a season-long loan, while they will have the option to purchase him outright for an additional fee of €7m or €8m.
The duo will be challenging Kostas Manolas, Antonio Rudiger and Norbert Gyomber for starting positions, while Ervin Zukanovic is also capable of operating in the heart of defence.
