Doumbia refuses to rule out Roma move

The Cote d'Ivoire international prefers to move to a club that plays in the Champions League, but admitted that the Giallorossi could be a possible destination as well
CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia has refused to rule out a move to Roma this summer as he set his sights on a move to a bigger league.

The Giallorossi reportedly see the Cote d'Ivoire international as a valuable addition to their attack, and although Doumbia prefers a move to a club that plays Champions League football, he has admitted that the Serie A side are still an option.

"Roma? I'm not closing the door on any team. I could be interested if the project they're working on convinces me," Doumbia stated to Corriere dello Sport.

"I am ready for the Italian championship, but also for Spain or England. I want to make the next step in my career.

"I want to play in the Champions League. But it doesn't make sense to join a club that plays in the Champions League one year, and then doesn't even play in Europe the next season.

"We will just await all the concrete offers that come in, and then decide what's best for me together with my agent Jean Bernard Beytrison."
