Arsenal and Chelsea defender target has chosen his future club - £26million deal to be completed soon


Roma defender Kostas Manolas is set to leave the Giallorossi to join Zenit St Petersburg for £26million, the Sun has claimed.

Last week, agent Ioannis Evangelopoulos made it clear that the 26-year-old wanted to stay in the Serie A.

"There is a valid contract with Roma until 2019," Evangelopoulos told TuttoMercatoWeb.

"Kostas wants to play well in a Roma jersey.

"As for renewing his contract, at the moment I do not know. I can't respond to that question.

"But I should say that he is happy in Rome.

"[If Chelsea made contact?] I'd rather not comment."

But it now seems that the Giallorossi have reached an agreement with Roberto Mancini's new club.

The Greece international was a target for Arsenal and Chelsea last summer with the Blues making contact again this month to negotiate the transfer.
