Roma set to complete €30m deal for Atalanta's Cristante

Roma's efforts to strengthen the side that battled to the semi-finals of the Champions League will continue with the acquisition of Bryan Cristante from Atalanta. 

Goal can confirm that the midfielder will join the Giallorossi this summer in a deal worth €30 million (£26.3m/$35.3m). 

He will be the second signing of the transfer window for the club, who have also sealed a move for former Porto left-back Ivan Marcano.

Roma are long-term admirers of Cristante, who at 23 is rated as one of Italy's top prospects in the middle of the pitch. 

He is yet another midfield talent to come out of Atalanta, after Milan swooped for Franck Kessie in 2017 on a loan-to-buy deal. 

Cristante is scheduled to arrive at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday evening, where he wil undergo a medical. 

Reports suggest that the youngster, who has five caps for Italy, will sign a five-year deal with Roma with wages of up to €1m a season.
