Cagliari are on the verge of signing Nacional midfielder Christian Oliva, reports say.

Sky Sport Italia claim the Serie A outfit have been in talks with the Uruguayan club and hope to sign the 22-year-old in a deal that is set to be worth around 5million euros.

Oliva is now likely to undergo a medical with the Rossoblu and the move should be given the green light in the next few days.

Oliva has made 43 appearances for Nacional and is being seen by some as a natural replacement for Nicolo Barella, who is the target of other clubs this month.
