Roma have signed Sevilla midfielder Steven Nzonzi in a deal said to be worth up to around £27 million.
The 29-year old France midfielder, a member of Didier Deschamps’ World Cup winning squad, had also been linked with a big-money move to the Premier League, with Arsenal reportedly interested.
He made five appearances in Russia, coming off the bench in the final during their 4-2 win over Croatia in Moscow.
The former Blackburn Rovers and Stoke star spent three years with Sevilla, during which time he won the 2016 Europa League.

Roma finished third in Serie A last season behind Juventus and Napoli. They play their first game of the new Serie A season at Torino on Sunday.
