But, bolstered by an impressive run to the Champions League semi-finals last season, Roma have sealed some impressive transfer business so far.

And, in Kluivert, Monchi has secured one of the most highly-rated prospects in the game for Roma.

He is the son of the former Barcelona striker Patrick, but is clearly not weighed down by the pressure and recently earned his first international cap.
