Rome (AFP) – Justin Kluivert, the son of former Barcelona and Newcastle striker Patrick, left Ajax for Roma for 17.25 million euros ($20mln) on Friday, the Serie A club announced.
The Dutch international winger penned a five-year contract with the Italian giants that runs until 30 June 2023.
“I’m feeling great. I’m at an unbelievable club and I can’t wait to start,” said Kluivert who made 30 league appearances for Ajax last season, scoring 10 goals.
“I think Roma is a great club for me — I think they can build me into a bigger, stronger player and I can do some nice things here.”
