ITALIAN international Massimo Maccarone is locked in talks with Middlesbrough over his proposed é¼13 million (£8.3 million) transfer to The Riverside.
Maccarone and his agent Paolo Fabbri arrived in England on Thursday to finalise personal terms and undergo a routine medical.
The Empoli ace is still considering whether to make the big move to England and Fabbri confirmed that he and his charge will be in England until the weekend.
"We have arrived in England and will be here for the next few days," Fabbri told planetfootball.com.
"We are talking things over and should now more by tomorrow [Friday]."
Maccarone deal represents a club record deal for Middlesbrough, who are staying very quiet on the deal until - they hope - it is completed.
