Report: Mancini set for Roma

Atalanta defender Gianluca Mancini is reportedly on his way to Roma in a €24m deal.

Roma seemed to have moved away from Mancini and focused their attentions on Tottenham Hotspur’s Toby Alderweireld.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira reports a fee of €24m including bonuses has been agreed and that the 23-year-old is ‘hours’ away from landing in Rome.

He is expected to sign a five-year contract with the Giallorossi worth €2m a season.

Schira adds the Lupi will then look to close deals for Alderweireld and Fiorentina midfielder Jordan Veretout.

Mancini, who can also play at right-back, broke out for Atalanta last season, scoring five goals in 30 appearances to help them qualify for the Champions League.
