Barcelona striker linked with Roma move


Barcelona areset to free one of their front men to join Italian giants AS Roma latest transfer reports indicate.

It is understood that forward Munir El Haddadi is closing in on a switch to Roma according to the player’s agent.

The 21-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Valencia, is not believed to be in Ernesto Valverde’s plans at Camp Nou and has been linked with a move away from Spain.

Zenit and Ajax are reportedly interested in a €15million deal but Munir is said to be keen on joiningRoma, who are eager to sign attacking reinforcements.


His agent, Francesc Valdivieso, has confirmed that discussions are ongoing and that Munir would relish the chance to play at the Stadio Olimpico.

“Roma would be a welcome destination, they’re a top club, but I can’t sayany morebecause the deal is being discussed between the two clubs,” he told Roma news Web Radio.

Reports in Spain have suggested that talks are progressing slowly because Roma are unwilling to match Barca’s €15m valuation of Munir, who scored six goals in 33 La Liga appearances for Valencia last season
