According to Fabrizio Romano Fulham are closing in on a deal for Justin Kluivert, with a new round of talks with AS Roma taking place today to discuss the deal. Roma want a loan with an obligatory option to buy the player, whilst Fulham are still confident in completing the deal.
Romano reported last week that Roma’s Justin Kluivert has agreed personal terms with Premier League side Fulham – the player’s priority is to join the club as soon as possible, with negotiations still ongoing between the two clubs. New talks are scheduled for today, where they will try and find a full agreement.
According to Foot Mercato this week, the player agreed to join the Premier League side – with the move now depending on the two clubs finding an agreement.
If Roma let the son of Patrick Kluivert leave the club, they can conclude the signing of striker Andrea Belloti who has already agreed to join the Giallorossi on a three-year contract.
Marseille were in talks with representatives of Roma’s Dutch forward Justin Kluivert after his loan spell with OGC Nice came to an end at the end of this season.
The player’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta – who took over from Mino Raiola after he sadly passed away earlier this year, spoke with OM officials on Thursday over the 23-year-old joining the Velodrome club this summer.
Kluivert’s Roma contract has just one season left to run and he isn’t part of Jose Mourinho’s plans in the Italian capital. Although his form fluctuated wildly with Nice last season, the forward’s 12 goal contributions in 31 games across all competitions was enough to convince to Fulham and Marseille to try and take on the player in their respective leagues.
