Roma agree terms with Zeki Celik and Solbakken


Roma have agreed personal terms with Turkish fullback Zeki Çelik and have an agreement in place for Ola Solbakken. Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the Giallorossi are on the verge of closing deals for both players, but still need to find an agreement with Lille for Çelik.

According to the report, Roma see Çelik as the perfect back-up for Rick Karsdorp as they look to strengthen the right side of the pitch.

Di Marzio suggests that Roma are entering the final phase of negotiations with Lille who want €9 million for the player, while the Giallorossi are offering €6 million.

Çelik is thought to have agreed terms on a contract worth €2 million per season.

The club are also on the verge of completing a deal for Bodø/Glimt attacker Ola Solbakken and are expected to offer the Norwegian side a nominal fee, given his contract with them is set expire in December.
