Roma leap for Luis Fabiano Saturday 22 March, 2008

Roma are staging an audacious bid for Liga top scorer Luis Fabiano, who could be snapped up for just £8.7m.

The Brazilian has been on spectacular form for Sevilla this season and has already netted 22 goals, 28 including Cup competitions.

Also the first choice centre-forward for the Selecao, he was signed from Porto in 2005 for less than £2m.

His price-tag has naturally rocketed since then, but the Gazzetta dello Sport claims there is a clause in his contract that could release him this summer for just £8.7m.

The money to pay for Luis Fabiano would come from the sale of Amantino Mancini, but it would also force a change of tactics.

He is a pure centre-forward, so Francesco Totti would by necessity be removed from that role and put further back into the Roma system.

It is possible they could keep the 4-2-3-1 with Totti in a deeper role behind the striker.
