Roma make second summer signing as Diawara joins

Roma have completed the signing of Amadou Diawara from Napoli.

The Guinean midfielder, who is currently on African Cup of Nations duty, joins as part of the operation that sent Kostas Manolas to the Stadio San Paolo yesterday.

Diawara has signed a five-year contract with Roma, that will keep him with his new club until 2024. The cost of the transfer is €21m.

The 21-year-old rose to prominence with Bologna in the 2015-16 season, after which he earned his move to Naples. However, he was mainly used as a rotation player in his three years there, due to the strength of their midfield.

His move to Roma should allow him the opportunity for more regular action at a top level side.

Benvenuto, Amadou.
