Berisha is Closer to Roma

Roma are closing in on another young, interesting prospect — and his name is Valmir Berisha, Swedish striker of the ’96 class currently on display at Halmstads BK. The Giallorossi are said to have already paid the €360,000 release clause in the player’s contract and it is rumored that the Swede is ready to sign a 4.5 year deal until 2018.

After being on display at the U-17 World Cup and putting in great performances for Sweden, the striker found himself at the center of interest from top clubs around Europe including Liverpool, Spurs, Roma, Celtic, and Werder Bremen — but it appears likely that the Giallorossi have beat the rest of the clubs for the player’s signature.
