Bosnian international Edin Dzeko stays in Italian club for 3 more years.
Roma has announced Edin Dzeko has signed a new three-year contract. He was reportedly a target for Inter before they sealed a deal for Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.
The 33-year-old has now committed his future to the Giallorossi by agreeing on terms on Friday.
“My conversations with the board, the work we’ve been doing with the coach [Paulo Fonseca], the relationship with my team-mates and the love of the fans have all made me realize once again what I had already learned during these four years – that Rome is my home. Here there is everything we need to win something and I am delighted to be able to stay here even longer.”
The former Manchester City and Wolfsburg striker was Serie A’s top goalscorer during the 2016-17 season but only hit nine goals in 33 appearances last term.
Earlier on Friday, Roma confirmed it has signed Turkish defender Yildrim Mert Cetin on a permanent transfer. The 22-year-old arrives on a five-year deal from Genclerbirligi for a fee of €3 million and will wear the number 15.
“I know the size of the club I am going to be representing,” he told Roma’s website. “I’m very happy to be here, it’s a feeling I can’t really describe in words. I am confident I will be able to live up to the hopes of the club and the fans.”
