(REUTERS) - Ajax Amsterdam winger Justin Kluivert, the son of former Dutch great Patrick Kluivert, is set to have a medical check-up at Roma ahead of his expected transfer, the Italian Serie A football club said on Tuesday (June 12).

"The 19-year-old, a full Netherlands international, touched down at the capital's Fiumicino Airport following a short flight," Roma said on their website (http://www.asroma.com/en/news/2018/6/justin-kluivert-arrives-in-rome) along with a picture of the teenager's arrival.

Kluivert scored 10 goals in 30 league appearances for Ajax last season and earned his first cap for the Netherlands in March. The player is expected to join Roma for a fee of €20 million (S$31.4 million), the Italian media have reported.
