Roma close on Maccabi Haifa teen

Roma have reportedly agreed a deal with 18-year-old Israeli-Romanian striker Suf Podgoreanu, according to Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà.

The centre-forward is still only playing for the Maccabi Haifa Under-19 team, so under Israeli rules is available for just under €100,000.

Despite his tender age, the striker is already extremely tall and therefore very strong in the air.

It’s believed Roma scouts have been keeping a close eye on the situation for months and have now managed to reach a full agreement with his entourage.

By accepting personal terms, Podgoreanu is set for a Giallorossi academy future.
