Justin Kluivert seems ready to make a move elsehwere as soon as this summer.

The 19-year-old winger, who is considered one of the top prospects in Europe, has set his mind in leaving Ajax this summer since he is mad at the club for trying to sell him without his knowledge earlier this season. This irated the forward, and it seems there is already a favourite for this services.

According to a report from France Football, AS Roma are reportedly leading the chase to make a move for the 19-year-old winger. Considering Roma’s success to develop youth talent, there shouldn’t be a problem in case Kluivert ends up completing his move to the Serie A.

And considering that the Italian giants have been quite successful in developing young players, this could be a perfect landing spot for the 19-year-old who already made his debut with the Netherlands. However, it is unknown whether Roma already made an official approach for the talented forward.

Kluivert only has one year left in his current contract, so his agent, Mino Raiola, shouldn’t have problems to find him a new club. The 19-year-old winger had a solid season for Ajax in the Eredivisie, as he produced 10 goals and five assists in 30 outings during the current season.
