Roma to up Stekelenburg bid

Roma are ready to offer €8m to Ajax in an effort to complete the capture of Maarten Stekelenburg, say Sky Sport Italia.

The two clubs have been in talks about the goalkeeper, but agreeing a fee has proved problematic.

With just a year left on his contract, there has been a difference of opinion with regard to demand and offer.

The Italian side are known to have made a €5m bid last week, but that was rejected by the Dutch club.

The former European champions want closer to €10m for the international, but €8m may now be enough to close the deal.
