While the figures of the operation were not announced, the operation, reportedly, will cost Basel €2 million for the loan of the player with an option to buy for €6 million:

“AS Roma S.p.A. can confirm that it has reached an agreement with Swiss club FC Basel 1893 for the loan of forward Seydou Doumbia for the duration of the 2016-17 season.

The striker arrived at the club during the winter transfer window in the 2014-15 season, going on to score two goals in 14 games during the remainder of that campaign.
