Roma have not yet agreed personal terms with Dinamo Zagreb talent Ante Coric, delaying his planned medical, according to Sky Sport Italia.
The creative midfielder had been expected to fly in this week after the clubs worked out a transfer fee worth €7m plus €1m in bonuses.
However, Sky Sport Italia report they have still not been able to agree personal terms with the 21-year-old’s entourage.
The medical has therefore been postponed and negotiations continue, hoping to get a deal done before other clubs can intervene.
Coric has repeatedly been linked with a Premier League move in recent years, but wanted more time to mature at Dinamo Zagreb.
