And Atalanta are moving quickly to replace him with Dutch international Karsdorp, who spent last season on loan at Feyenoord.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Karsdorp will first renew his Roma contract for budgetary reasons.
The 25-year-old will then join Atalanta on loan with an obligation to buy for €7m in a year’s time.
The source of this news, Di Marzio’s colleague Manuele Baicocchini, adds that they will acquire 60% of Karsdorp’s pass (40% sell-on clause for Roma).
