German daily Bild is reporting that Werder Bremen are set to wrap up the deal for Argentine full-back Santiago Garcia.
The 25-year-old defender, who spent the last season at Palermo, is a free agent and he looks set to join the Bundesliga outfit.
General manager Thomas Eichin has confirmed that the Weserstadion outfit is in talks with the highly rated footballer.
“We have interest in him, but the deal has not been concluded,” Eichin explained to Bild.
Werder have already signed one player on a free transfer this summer, having snatched forward Franco Di Santo from Wigan Athletic, and they look ready to boost their ranks with another Argentine footballer.
Santiago Garcia began his career at Rosario Central and went on to join Palermo in the summer of 2010.
After appearing in just three Serie A games during his first year in Italy, he was farmed out on loan at Novara, where he performed pretty well before returning to Renzo Barbera last summer.
Garcia has made 30 Serie A appearances for the Rosanero last term, scoring one goal in the process.
