The winger, son of former Netherlands and Barcelona striker Patrick Kluivert, has signed a five-year contract at the Stadio Olympico.

Like his dad, Kluivert Jr came through Ajax's esteemed youth academy, making his debut in the Dutch Eredivisie on 15 January 2017, and scored 10 goals in 30 league appearances last season.

In March, the 19 year-old left-winger won his first cap for the Netherlands, who failed to qualify for the World Cup in Russia.

"it was not easy to bring him to Roma ahead of a number of other clubs," said Roma sporting director Monchi.

"I think that Justin is already one of the most exciting young players in Europe."

Kluivert said he chose Roma as the team can take him to the next level.

"I think Roma is a great club for me. I think they can build me into a bigger, stronger player and I can do some nice things here," he said.

He's got a job on to live up to the family name.

As an 18 year-old, dad Patrick won the UEFA Champions League with Ajax, coming off the bench to score the winning goal in the final against AC Milan.

He also won three Dutch league titles and two Spanish league titles while representing his country at three UEFA European Championships and the 1998 World Cup.
