Agent: Doumbia excited to make Roma move

The agent of CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia says he's excited about his move to AS Roma.

Doumbia joins for €14.4m plus add-ons.

"I don't know when the two clubs were first in contact, but with us it was 7-10 days ago," representative Jean Bernard Beytrison told calciomercato.it.

"Rudi Garcia called not to convince him, but to explain his style of football. There is no need to convince someone to come to a side like Roma.

"With Seydou we often discussed the Giallorossi and Francesco Totti, especially after the Champions League games. He is attracted to attacking football, the kind played by Roma."
