(Reuters) - AS Roma have signed Croatian midfielder Ante Coric from GNK Dinamo Zagreb for 6 million euros ($6.9 million), the Serie A club announced on Monday.
The Italian side will pay at least an additional 2 million euros, or ten percent of the transfer fee, for the 21-year-old, capped three times by Croatia, if he moves to another club before the end of the 2019-20 season.
"I believe that, with his signing, we have secured one of the emerging talents of European football," AS Roma's sporting director Monchi said on the club's website www.asroma.com/en.
