Viviani confirms Premier League bid

Roma youth product Federico Viviani looks to be heading for the Premier League, confirmed his agent, but won’t name the club.

The creative midfielder is 22 years old, an Italy Under-21 international captain and grew up in the Giallorossi academy.

Since January he has been on loan to Serie B side Latina and caught the eye of several English sides.

“Federico is very happy at the moment, as he is doing well at Latina and recently got to wear the captain’s armband for Italy at Under-21 level,” agent Giovanni Ferro told calciomercato.com.

“This is an important season for him and consequently he has moved on to the radar of many prestigious clubs.

“The Premier League? Yes, I will soon fly out to England. I prefer not to name the club in question, but we’ll see what happens.

“When I return from this trip, I’ll go to Trigoria and speak to the Roma directors, update them on the offers we’ve received and together choose the best solution for the player. He can still really improve a great deal. Any decision will be made along with Roma.”

Clubs interested in Viviani are thought to include Genoa and Dynamo Moscow.
