DONE DEAL: Cagliari sign Olympique Marseille midfielder Kevin Strootman

Cagliari have signed Olympique Marseille midfielder Kevin Strootman on-loan with the option to buy.

Strootman had joined Genoa on a dry loan deal in January, playing 18 games with the Grifone.

Cagliari announced:

Cagliari Calcio are delighted to announce that the player Kevin Strootman has been signed from Olympique Marseille on loan until 30 June 2022 with an option to renew for the following season.

"Last January he returned to Italy in the ranks of Genoa: here with his performances (18 games, 4 assists) he gives his contribution to the permanence of the team in Serie A. He boasts 46 appearances and 3 goals for the Dutch national team.

"Experience, physicality, technique, ability to get into the box, powerful and precise shooting, desire to win: there is all this in Kevin Strootman's repertoire. A modern, natural left-handed midfielder, capable of playing in all areas of the midfield, depending on the needs and moments of the match. Tactically intelligent, he dictates game times to his teammates, heart and brain of the team.

"Now Strootman will be able to put his qualities at the service of Cagliari: welkom op Sardinië, Kevin!"
