This saga seems to be over! Jordan Veretout can be considered a new Roma player. Although he will sign the contract with the Giallorossi right after his medical examinations that will take place tomorrow morning, the Frenchman is ready to start his new professional adventure close to the Colosseum.
Roma firmly wanted Veretout, a player who did very well at Fiorentina last campaign. To better understand his importance for the Viola, we have to take into consideration key numbers. Stats can be deceptive sometimes but numbers can tell us something more about the real value of this midfielder.
Jordan Veretout made 33 caps as a starter with Fiorentina playing an average of 89 minutes per game. The 26-year-old scored 5 goals during the 2018-19 campaign but his best quality is concreteness. The Frenchman made 82% of accurate passes per game, simply impressive numbers for the almost former Fiorentina man. His temperament made the difference in Florence. He is a player who has qualities similar to those of the best Radja Nainggolan.
In just a few more hours the fans of the Lupi can celebrate Veretout’s move to their beloved club. Roma needed a dynamic and energetic player like him.
