Official: Roma complete Kalinic signing as Schick replacement

Roma have completed the signing of Nikola Kalinic from Atletico Madrid.

The striker, who arrives on loan for the season at a cost of €2m, will serve as Edin Dzeko’s deputy, following the departure of Patrik Schick to RB Leipzig.

Roma can sign Kalinic permanently for €9m at the end of the season.

It marks a return to Serie A for the Croatian forward, who has also played for Fiorentina and AC Milan in the past.

Kalinic, who will wear the number 19 shirt vacated by compatriot Ante Coric, told“It feels great, because I am joining a big club.

“I am proud to become part of this team and this club. Roma has big history and I am very happy to be here.”

Benvenuto, Nikola.
