The Swede will join for an initial fee of €8.5 million, and the deal will include a number of performance-related clauses, which could add up to an additional €3.5m.

Roma confirmed the signing of Olsen moments after Barcelona announced that Malcom had joined the club for around £40m; Di Francesco’s men will feel aggrieved after they agreed terms with Bordeaux for the player, but he has since opted for the Camp Nou.

Olsen has signed a five-year contract with the club which will run until 30 June 2023, and he spoke of his delight in signing with the Serie A club.

He said: “Robin is a goalkeeper with international experience, and I think he can bring that level to Roma with him.
