Roma close to signing Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral

Roma are on the verge of signing Real Madrid striker Borja Mayoral, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

The 23-year-old was reportedly close to Roma’s local rivals Lazio in July, then Valencia made an approach.

But in their search of a high-level deputy for Edin Dzeko, Roma have been in constant contact with Madrid for Mayoral.

Mayoral would replace Croatian international Nikola Kalinic, who remains in talks to join Besiktas.

Roma and Madrid were discussing the final details of a deal for Mayoral on Sunday.

Mayoral will renew his Madrid contract – expiring in 2021 – before joining Roma on loan with an option to buy.

The former Spain under-21 forward spent the last two seasons on loan at Levante, making a good impression.

On Saturday, Mayoral made a late substitute appearance for Madrid in their 3-2 win over Betis.
