Crystal Palace starlet Zion Atta signs with super agent Mino Raiola

Crystal Palace starlet Zion Atta has signed with super agent Mino Raiola.

Roma and Ajax have made big offers to tempt the 16-year-old forward away from the Selhurst Park club, says the Daily Mail.

Raiola's involvement in Atta's future is the latest ominous sign for Palace with the 53 year-old renowned for securing moves for his players.

Atta is understood to have turned down a new scholarship and professional contract offer from Palace as he seeks a clearer pathway to first-team football.

And the firmed up approaches from abroad represent another challenge to Palace in their attempts to retain Atta.

Atta has family links to Italy's capital city, potentially boosting Roma's hopes.
