Justin Kluivert reached full agreement with Fulham. The departure of the Dutchman will open the door for AS Roma to contract the valued striker – Andrea Belotti, informs Santi Aouna from Foot Mercato.
The 23-year-old Dutch winger will soon, if nothing unexpected happens, follow his father Patrick’s footsteps again and honor his presence with English fans.
Ajax’s graduate Amsterdam has already agreed all the individual terms of the contract with Fulham, leaving the question of his future in the hands of AS Roma.
Both teams are conducting advanced talks on this matter, striving to finalize them quickly. The latest offer from the Craven Cottage team was EUR 12 million and, according to Santi Aouna from Foot Mercato, it fully met the expectations of the Italian side. So there are some minor details to be discussed.
AS Roma would like to sell Kluivert as soon as possible, because another operation of the club from Stadio Olimpico depends on this move.
Andrea Belotti decided to continue his career in Rome. The Calcinate sniper rejected the advances of other teams, focusing on the Roman direction.
The budget of the Giallorossi is quite tight after several transfers in the ongoing window, including by Paulo Dybali and Georginio Winjnaldum. Activists from the Italian capital did not want to strain it even more, so they made any further strengthening dependent on earlier sales.
Aouna emphasizes that the Belotti case is an absolute priority for the Roman team, which would like to crown an impressive transfer window in this way.
Justin Kluivert hit the Stadio Olimpico in 2018, then departing for less than 18 million from his home Ajax. On the fields of Serie A, the two-time representative of “Oranje” failed all expectations, disappointing with his attitude. The 23-year-old hopes to regain his form in West London, which will help him get a ticket to this year’s Qatar World Cup.
