Roma have clinched the loan signing of Guillermo Burdisso from Argentine side Rosario Central.
The central defender is the younger brother of Inter's Nicolas, who spent last season on loan at Roma and is a target for a permanent transfer.
Guillermo Burdisso, 22, will stay with Roma for the whole of the forthcoming campaign and there is then the option for a 4.5million euros move next summer.
Standing at 6ft 3in, Burdisso has caught the eye with his performances in his homeland and is regarded as an exciting prospect for the future.
He also marked his first and only appearance for Argentina with a goal in a 2-1 friendly victory against Costa Rica in January.
Roma have yet to agree a fee with champions Inter for 29-year-old Nicolas, with his agent recently admitting a switch was looking less likely.
