Fiorentina’s Jordan Veretout joining Roma for €17m

Roma have their second reinforcement of the day. Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that Jordan Veretout is joining Roma from Fiorentina. The Giallorossi will, reportedly, pay €17 million plus €2 million in bonuses for the ex-Aston Villa man. Furthermore, the Frenchman will be handed a five-year contract worth €2.5 million (net) plus bonuses per season. Roma appear to have won the race for Veretout after fending off competition from Lyon, Milan and Napoli.
