Andy Mattioli

Gini Wijnaldum is reportedly ready to make his Roma debut from the start in the upcoming Serie A fixture with Cremonese on Tuesday evening.

The Dutchman is the favorite to replace Nemanja Matic in the midfield, reports Corriere dello Sport, as the Serbian veteran played a full 90 minutes against Salzburg on Thursday and is in need of rest.

Wijnaldum’s recent appearances off the bench showed glimpses of quality and experience which Mourinho hopes to utilize in the busiest schedule of the season.
