Chelsea are reportedly set to miss out on signing Paraguayan forward Sergio Diaz after Roma swooped in with a better deal for the youngster.
The 17-year-old forward, who plays for Cerra Porteno, was linked with a move to Chelsea, but his father, who was reportedly a guest at Stamford Bridge for their last Premier League game, has revealed that the Serie A side made a better offer to beat the Blues to the youngster.
"My son wants to play at Roma. Their offer is more concrete than that of Chelsea," the Paraguayan forward's father said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
Roma already have another Paraguayan in Antonio Sanabria, who they signed from Barcelona last summer beating off competition from Arsenal.
Despite confirming his move to Roma, the striker has revealed that his dream since being a kid has been to play in the English Premier League with Arsenal.
"My dream is to play for Arsenal, which I've had since I was a child. My future? I am told that it is all but done for my transfer to Roma," Diaz revealed.
"At the moment it's very quiet, I still do not know when I will leave for Italy, but in essence my move to Roma has been confirmed," the Cerra Porteno striker added.
Meanwhile, Hector Bellerin has expressed absolute delight at winning the FA Cup with Arsenal in his breakthrough year at the club.
"I can't even believe it! It's been such an amazing season, and to have this to top it off has been amazing," the Spaniard told Arsenal's official site.
"This is a dream that everyone has as a kid to win a trophy like this in a stadium like for a club like this, with all these players. I have no words, I'm just so happy," Bellerin added.
