Roma drop Kluivert for Parma

Roma have dropped Justin Kluivert from their squad to face Parma as it is reported they plan to sell the winger this summer.

According to Il Tempo journalist Filippo Biafora, the decision made by Roma coach Paulo Fonseca is a ‘technical’ one.

Kluivert has struggled for form since the lockdown was lifted, failing to complete his two starts against Milan and Napoli, both of which ended in defeat.

The 21-year-old has also been linked with Arsenal in recent weeks, although a deal is not currently close to being agreed.

Regardless, Biafora added on Twitter that he fully expects the Dutchman to leave the Olimpico this summer.

The son of ex-Milan striker Patrick, he joined Roma from Ajax in the summer of 2018 for an initial €17.25m and has three years left on his contract.

Kluivert has made 29 appearances in all competitions this season, with seven goals and two assists.

Roma squad for Parma: Pau Lopez, Fuzato, Mirante; Zappacosta, Kolarov, Cetin, Fazio, Mancni, Peres, Spinazzola, Ibanez, Cristante, Pellegrini, Perotti, Villar, Veretout, Zaniolo, Pastore, Diawara, Mkhitaryan, Dzeko, Cengiz, Kalinic, Perez
