Roma have completed the signing of Bryan Reynolds from FC Dallas.
The right-back arrives in Italy on a loan deal until the end of the season for €100k, after which Roma will pay €6.75m for his services.
There could be a total of €5.65m in further payments if clauses are met which will activate add-ons. The MLS also retains a 15% sell-on clause.
Roma’s interest in the Texan emerged recently, before Juventus and Benevento also got involved. However, it is La Magica who have won the race.
Reynolds, 19, becomes the second American player to represent Roma’s first team, after Michael Bradley.
This will be his first venture in Europe after rising to prominence in the MLS.
Capped by the USA at under-18 level, he will now be looking to boost his career in Europe.
He told asroma.com: “I am excited and humbled to join AS Roma. It is a dream come true.
“After speaking to the club, I quickly realised that this is the ideal place for me to improve and develop as a footballer.
“My challenge now is to keep improving day after day: I will work hard to achieve great things for this club.”
Reynolds will wear the number 19 shirt and has signed a contract until 2025.
