ROME - Ajax Amsterdam winger Justin Kluivert, the son of former Dutch great Patrick Kluivert, is set to have a medical at AS Roma ahead of his expected transfer, the Serie A club said on Tuesday. "The 19-year-old, a full Netherlands international, touched down at the capital's Fiumicino Airport following a short flight," Roma said on their website
Kluivert scored 10 goals in 30 league appearances for Ajax last season and earned his first cap for the Netherlands in March. The player is expected to join Roma for a fee of 20 million euros ($23.51 million), Italian media have reported.
Meanwhile, Cardiff City have signed winger Josh Murphy from Norwich City on a four-year contract, the clubs said on Tuesday.
Murphy, who scored seven goals in 41 appearances for Norwich City in the second-tier Championship last campaign, is Cardiff manager Neil Warnock's first signing in the close season as the Bluebirds prepare to play in the Premier League next term.
"Josh is a player I've watched for a number of years now and he's always excited me when he runs with the ball," Warnock said. "I think he's at the right age now with his best still to come...He's been my number one target since the end of last season."
Financial details have not been disclosed but British media reported that Cardiff paid about 10 million pounds ($13.38 million) for the 23-year-old Murphy.
