Official: Kalinic signs for Roma

Nikola Kalinic has officially joined Roma, on loan with option to buy from Atletico Madrid for a total of €11m.

A statement confirmed Kalinic is on loan at the Olimpico for €2m, with option to buy at the end of the season for a further €9m.

The 31-year-old Croatia international forward returned to Serie A, having previously played for Fiorentina in 2015-17 and Milan in 2018-19.

He was sold to Atletico Madrid for €14.5m last summer, but struggled for regular playing time with four goals in 24 competitive games.

Kalinic is one of several transfer deadline day arrivals for Roma, the other main one being Henrikh Mkhitaryan on loan from Arsenal.

Both had their medicals at the Villa Stuart clinic this morning.
