Ghana striker Felix Afena-Gyan to undergo medical today ahead of move to Cremonese

Published on: 26 August 2022

Ghana striker Felix Afena-Gyan will join Serie A newcomers Cremonese from AS Roma this summer on a permanent deal.

The 19-year-old is undergoing his medical today and the deal is expected to be finalized by either late today or tomorrow.

Roma will earn around €10 million in total including €4 million in add-ons. On the other hand, his exit should grant Andrea Belotti the chance to join Roma.

Afena-Gyan recently extended his stay with Roma after successful negotiations. He has scored two goals in 22 appearances for the Giallorossi since making his first-team debut last October.

After his brace for AS Roma in the Serie A, Afena-Gyan announced his presence in Europe and was followed by several clubs including Premier League clubs including Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Southampton.

He made his Ghana debut in March, helping the Black Stars to qualify for this year's World Cup by overcoming Nigeria in a two-legged play-off.

The highly-rated forward scored his first international goal against Madagascar last month, and has featured in six games.
