According to Fabrizio Romano Premier League side Fulham are set to sign Roma forward Justin Kluivert with both clubs in full agreement over a loan deal with an obligation to buy clause set at €9.5m – a medical is being scheduled in London before the move is fully completed.
It has previously been reported by Fabrizio Romano that Kluivert is nearing a move to Craven Cottage, adding that the Premier League side are “confident” of a deal.
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.
Last season, Kluivert spent the season on loan at Ligue 1 side OGC Nice. During his time on the Riviera, the Netherlands international made 27 league appearances, scoring four times and registering six assists.
