Amadou Diawara will soon end his time in the Italian capital in favor of a permanent switch abroad. The Guinean midfielder is set to become a new player for Belgian side Anderlecht. Their manager, Felice Mazzu, recently confirmed the player’s imminent arrival.

“We checked him out,” Mazzu told reporters in a recent press conference ahead of tomorrow night’s engagement with Gent. “We analyzed him thoroughly,” he added. “He’s the kind of profile we’ve been missing.”

“Diawara offers great intensity and physical strength,” concluded the Belgian coach.

According to La Libre, the player already underwent a first series of tests. Tomorrow, Diawara will complete his medical and sign his new contract with the club, effectively parting ways with Roma on a permanent basis.

Earlier reports suggested that Roma are set to earn around €3 million including add-ons with a 50% sell-on clause for Diawara’s future sale.
