Eldor Shomurodov should sign the contract with Roma today and then travel to join his new teammates in Portugal.
Il Corriere dello Sport reports the Giallorossi have tried to hide the transfer of the Genoa forward, as the Uzbekistan international arrived with a private plane yesterday.
There were no fans able to approach him at Fiumicino airport, as he went straight to Trigoria.
The newspaper reports he was then accompanied to Villa Stuart for his medical examinations, where some fans were waiting to see the new signing. But the executives armoured the striker, who entered through a secondary entrance reserved for the laundry trucks.
Shomurodov is expected to tie himself to La Lupa today and then travel to Portugal to start working with Jose Mourinho and his new teammates.
The 26-year-old moved to Serie A last October, when he joined Genoa from FK Rostov, and appeared 31 times in the League for the Grifone.
