Roma are close to completing a deal to sign AFC Ajax forward Justin Kluivert having agreed an 18m euro fee with the Eredivisie club, according to Sky Italia.
The Italian club have beaten off competition from Man United and Tottenham Hotspur, who have both shown an interest in the Dutch forward.
Since speaking out over the way Ajax attempted to sell him to Tottenham last summer, it was clear that Kluivert would depart the Johan Cruijff Arena this summer.
The forward has just one-year remaining on his current deal and has been unable to agree to a new contract, forcing Ajax to offload the player this summer.
Roma have taken advantage of the situation and have completed another shrewd piece of business.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Justin is one of the most highly sought-after young forwards on the continent and Roma look set to snap him up for a bargain fee.
The 19-year-old netted scored ten goals in 30 league games this season.
