Ivorian striker Seydou Doumbia joins A.S Roma


Ivorian forward Seydou Doumbia has joined AS from CSKA Moscow on a four-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee, with both clubs making official statements within the past few hours.

The Ivorian striker is currently representing his side at the African Cup of Nations, netting once in three appearances so far in the tournament coming from the bench, crucially winning a point for the Elephants with a last minute strike against Guinea in the first round.

He is set to join compatriot Gervinho who is playing for the Italian giants, with Doumbia signing as a replacement for Mattia Destro, who has moved to AC Milan.

Doumbia announced earlier today that he chose to play for The Wolves because of their attacking football style and to have the chance to play “with a monster like Totti”. The Ivorian has now filled Roma’s final slot for a foreign player, which was previously going to be used for Mohamed Salah until interest was dropped after the Serie A side reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Chelsea.

Doumbia, who has featured for the CSKA Moscow side since 2010, scored 61 goals in 95 appearances for the Russian side. He also won the top goalscorer award in Côte d’Ivoire’s Premier Division, Swiss Championship (twice) and Russian Premier League (twice).

Hesham is a young architect who has been a passionate fan of Egyptian and international football since 1994. A big fan of Arsenal and Al Ahly. Loves the game and believes it can be pushed to another level in his home country - Egypt - if well presented.
