Roma have reached an agreement for Genoa striker Eldor Shomurodov. The Roman club made the following official announcement for the Uzbekistan international:
Shomurodov, 26, joins AS Roma on a permanent deal for an initial fee of €17.5 million.
The agreement, which includes a number of performance-related clauses, also sees Genoa retain the right to a percentage of the profit, where applicable, that may arise from any future transfer involving the player.
The Uzbekistan international has signed a five-year contract with the club that runs until 30 June 2026.
“Joining Roma represents a huge step forward in my career – I will do everything I can to show I deserve this opportunity and to demonstrate what I can do at one of the biggest clubs in the world,” Shomurodov said.
“The speed in which this deal was agreed is testament to my desire to be able to join up with the coach and my new teammates and get to work as soon as possible.”
“Eldor is a forward with great potential to develop even further and he is hungry to prove himself at Roma, in a league he already knows well,” said Tiago Pinto, the club’s General Manager.
“Along with that desire, his qualities as a player also fit well with the way our coach wants to play – and for that reason we are delighted to be able to welcome him to the club.”
Shomurodov will wear the No. 14 shirt for the Giallorossi.
