Italian champions Roma have completed the £4.2 million signing of Bologna midfielder Francisco Lima.

The Brazilian star, 30, has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the capital club and becomes the sixth Brazilian at the Olimpico.

Samba aces Emerson, Aldair, Cafu, Zago and Marcos Assuncao are already integral members of the Serie A outfit.

Bologna team-mate Tomas Locatelli lauded the departed Lima adding: "I would hate to have to play against him. He just goes straight for you, and is very good at winning the ball."
