Roma look to Stekelenburg

Roma's plans for Emiliano Viviano are in tatters, so they turn to Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.

It was reported the Giallorossi had a deal in place to take Italy shot-stopper Viviano if Bologna won the auction with Inter.

However, an error in the paperwork has seen the Nerazzurri take full ownership, which makes negotiations with Roma somewhat complicated.

Instead, Luis Enrique has sent his emissaries to Amsterdam in order to clinch the signature of Stekelenburg.

The 29-year-old Dutch international is a hero at Ajax and has been valued at around €12m, but there could be a discount considering his contract expires in June 2012.
