Free agent Harry Kewell transfer saga nears the end

Harry Kewell

NEW Socceroos Captain Harry Kewell looks to have perhaps sorted out his playing future with reports coming out of the UK and Italy that AS Roma are on the verge of signing the Australian.

Kewell has gone on the record by stating that he would like to one day play on the European continent before his career ends and the Italian capital looks like the next stop.

AS Roma manager Luciano Spalletti is also interested in Man Utd’s Louis Saha but is said to be favouring the free agent Aussie as the Saha could cost around AU$15-million.

It is believed that Kewell will fly straight to Rome after Australia’s final World Cup qualifier against China this Sunday in Sydney to undergo a medical test before signing for the Italian giants.

Kewell would be hooking up with former Liverpool team mate John Arne Riise who has been on the outer with Red’s manager Rafa Benitez in recent times. Riise is set to join Roma on July 1 for around AU$9-million.
